Hamilton took advantage of a spin by Vettel who he went past on the second chicane and the Ferrari driver finished down in fourth, which leaves him a long way off the reigning champion.
The tow, coupled with a scruffy final lap by Vettel, provided Raikkonen with enough speed to edge out Ferrari's number one championship contender by 0.161 seconds, and Hamilton by 0.175 sec.
Vettel spun in a lap-one clash with Hamilton and although he raced back through the field with a damaged vehicle to fourth, he slipped 30 points behind the Englishman with seven races to go.

"I wouldn't say it was really a miracle today I think and before the race as you can see out there, there's a lot of Ferrari fans obviously and there's a lot of that negative sound that you hear, that just encourages me, it energises me and also particularly when go around there's quite a lot of British fans around".
Hamilton said he had already been "a bit surprised" that Vettel went to the left at the first chicane, where "there was a small touch between us all" and was surprised by his approach to the Roggia too. 'I tried to get out from there but I couldn't. "So then I left a gap and Lewis obviously saw a little bit around the outside but then he didn't leave me any space".
Moments later, Hamilton was in the lead after passing Raikkonen on lap four, only for the 38-year-old to bite back two corners later. I'm sure it's exciting for people to watch. "We did a few laps but after that it was like having a day in the office when you don't have too much work to do - I was even snoozing in the auto at one point! "
