F1 Seasons2007Kimi Räikkönen's title (P2 Lewis Hamiltom, P3 Fernando Alonso)

Facts:

  • After Schumacher's retirement, Ferrari signed Kimi Räikkönen. His place in McLaren was filled by Fernando Alonso and the rookie Lewis Hamilton;
  • For the first time, the races calendar didn’t count with the German GP. A race was held at the Nurburgring as the European GP. 2007 was also the year that the San Marino GP left the calendar;
  • Alex Wurz's last season. He retired one race before the end of the season;
  • A major talking point of the season had been an espionage controversy involving Ferrari and McLaren, which led to McLaren being excluded from the Constructors’ Championship. As a result,Ferrari clinched the championship at the Belgian GP;
  • At the Australian GP, Kimi Räikkönen took the victory and became the 4th driver to win on their debut for FerrariFernando Alonso came 2nd and debutantLewis Hamilton finished 3rd;
  • The Canadian GP was a very dramatic race with 4 safety car periods and one of the biggest crashes of Formula 1 in recent years, with Kubica hitting the walls. The race started off with the 2nd all McLaren front row with Lewis Hamilton taking his first pole position followed by Fernando Alonso. Hamilton won the race (his first win and his only 6th GP);
  • The season finale in Brazil marked the first time since 1986 that 3 drivers had a chance of becoming world champion at the last race, and the first time since 1950 that the man who stood in 3rd before the final race went on to win the championship, the driver then being Nino Farina;
  • Lewis Hamilton was the favourite with 107 points followed by Fernando Alonso on 103 points and Kimi Räikkönen on 100 points. Lewis Hamilton started 2nd but dropped to the back of the pack after a gearbox problem. He recovered to 7th but Kimi Räikkönen won the race and the championship. The final standings were Räikkönen on 110 points followed by Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso each on 109 points;
  • An appeal by McLaren regarding the legality of some cars in the final race could have altered the championship standings, but the appeal was reportedly rejected by the International Court of Appeal, confirming the championship results.
