And for the eighth time straight...
...In the Spanish Grand Prix, the race is won by the pole-sitter. The last time this race was won from a different grid spot dates back to 2000, when the pole-sitter was Michael Schumacher and the winner was Mika Hakkinen, who lined up alongside the German on the front row. The 2000 race is the only one in Spain since 1997 that was not won from pole.
Kimi Raikkonen gained his second hat-trick (pole, win and fastest lap) of his F1 career after last year's Australian Grand Prix, equalling the score of his teammate Felipe Massa, who recorded his two hat-tricks last year, in Bahrain and Spain.
At the top of the all-time chart, with the most number of hat-tricks, is Michael Schumacher, with 22.
