Kimi Raikkonen wins Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to throw open drivers' championship

Kimi Raikkonen won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday for his first victory since returning to Formula One this year. The result throws open the drivers' championship with two races remaining.

Raikkonen, the 2007 champion who drives for Lotus, overtook Red Bull's Mark Webber at the start to move into second. He took the lead on the 20th lap when McLaren's Lewis Hamilton retired because of an electrical problem.

Raikkonen held off Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who finished second. Two-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel clawed back from last to finish third, his lead over Alonso cut to 10 points.

Vettel tops the drivers' championship with 255 points, followed by Alonso at 245 and Raikkonen at 198.
