Massa leads Ferrari triumph

Felipe Massa won the French Grand prix to get Ferrari back to winning ways with team-mate Kimi Raikkonen finishing second despite exhaust problems suffered during the race.

In the end it was a comfortable one-two for Ferrari but the winners could have been in reverse order had Raikkonen not experienced exhaust problems.

Massa now leads the driver's championship by two points ahead of Robert Kubica who could only finish fifth.

Toyota grabbed a surprising last podium place thorough Jarno Trulli and things are suddenly looking good for Toyota.

In the last race Toyota got fourth and sixth places and this time they did better with third place but I still think that an outright win is still far off because Trulli never really challenge the Ferraris.

With Lewis Hamilton starting 13th on the grid after a ten place penalty imposed after the accident in Montreal, Heikki Kovalainen was McLaren's best hope for points but he could only get fourth place.

After his maiden win in Montreal, Kubica could only get fifth this time ahead of Mark Webber whom I think is now beginning to look very inconsistent.

The last two points places went to Renault with Nelson Piquet edging out team-mate Fernando Alonso towards the end of the race.

I think this was a disappointing race for Alonso who started third on the grid and I expected him to finish higher than eighth.

Other things to note is that Rubens Barrichello's recent good form seems to have deserted him in France as he finished 14th and also this race had just one retirement in Barrichello's team-mate Jenson Button.

The next race will be at Silverstone and I am keen to see if Hamilton can deliver the goods before his home crowd.
