Kimster ended a 25 race drought ending first on the podium thanks to a first lap collision that saw Lewis Hamilton and the Jenson Button crash out of the race. Kimi Raikkonen did manage to win the Belgian Grand Prix but the day eventually belonged to the team that finished second on the Podium-Force India. The minnows first managed a pole finish and then Giancarlo Fisichella finished second on the podium giving Force India its first points on the table. Fisichella was a challenge all the way and he took the race down the wire with a second to choose between the two. Fisichella could have even finished first but Kimi managed to overtake the Force India Driver courtesy of the KERS-assisted technology.
