Kimi Räikkönen

Kimi Räikkönen's Driver Bio

A driver defined by his blistering pace, thousand yard stare and a character the polar opposite of the entire formula one grid. Kimi started racing in Formula One with one of the shortest pre-F1 racing CV’s in history.

With race seats at McLaren, Ferrari and Lotus he’s always been a team favourite.

A great driver to watch Kimi is all or nothing.

Räikkönen's Career High

2007 with Ferrari, Raikkonen managed to clinch the title from both McLaren drivers at the final race in Sao Paulo making up a 7 point deficit.
