Disappointed Raikkonen

Kimi Raikkonen may be trying to adopt a philosophical approach to his Malaysian GP retirement, however, the Kimi couldn't hide his disappointment as he watching Renault extend their Championship lead.

Raikkonen, who firmly believed he would "be strong in the race" following Saturday's qualifying session, started from sixth place on the Sepang grid. However, he'll never know if his confidence was warranted as he didn't even make it through the opening lap.

At Turn Five on lap One, the McLaren driver was hit from behind by Red Bull Racing's Christian Klien. The impact caused his MP4-21's rear suspension to fail, which sent him careening off the track and into the barriers, ending his race.

"I cannot change anything," an obviously disappointed Raikkonen said."It was not really my fault. These things happen."Klien hit me on the rear tyre and broke my rear suspension".

Raikkonen is looking forward to Melbourne in two weeks.
