Hockenheim 2005. – Raikkonen retires from the lead, Alonso wins again

McLaren was the fastest in Germany in 2005, but instead of a convincing first row, Raikkonen and Montoya had problems in the last two corners at Hockenheim.

Kimi managed to save the car between the last two corners and Montoya went wide on the left kerb, squeezed the throttle and lost the rear end and ended up in the barriers.

Raikkonen won his fourth pole position of the season and seventh in his career (out of a total of 17).

In the race Raikkonen led and increased his advantage ahead of Alonso, but in the lap 35 , while having 11.5 seconds advantage, he retired due to hydraulic failure, after which Alonso took the lead and controlled the race to the end.

Montoya finished second after starting from 19th place and Button was third after starting from the second place which was his first podium in the season.

After Hockenheim, 12 of the 19 races of that season, Alonso had 36 points ahead of Raikkonen and Renault 22 points ahead of McLaren.
