SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium - Kimi Raikkonen won the Belgian Grand Prix for the third time in a row yesterday, leading a Ferrari one-two to revive his title challenge.

Brazilian Felipe Massa finished second, 4,6 seconds behind the Finn, with McLaren's double world champion Fernando Alonso third to cut teammate Lewis Hamilton's overall lead to two points.

Hamilton was fourth in yesterday's race.

With three races remaining, 22-year-old British rookie Hamilton has 97 points to Spaniard Alonso's 95. Raikkonen, celebrating his 13th career win and fourth of the year, is on 84 with Massa taking his tally to 77.

"It's for sure my favourite circuit, it was even before I came to Formula One," said Raikkonen of one of the most daunting circuits in the sport.

"Unfortunately, there's still a long way to go but we are still in the championship and hopefully we can catch up more in the next races." - Reuters
