Turkish Grand Prix

McLaren's Kimi Raikkonen won Sunday's inaugural Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul Speedpark but Renault's Fernando Alonso stole second place to remain title favourite.

Raikkonen's commanding win from pole position at the new Istanbul track was his fifth success of the season and second in a row. He finished in one hour 24 minutes 34.454 seconds, 18.6 seconds ahead of Alonso.
