Kimi Raikkonen opens up to F1’s Beyond The Grid podcast


He's the most experienced driver on the current F1 grid, easily one of the most popular, and certainly the most enigmatic. And Kimi Raikkonen is also the first guest on Season 2 of the official F1 podcast Beyond The Grid, presented by Bose.

Famously a man of few words, the Iceman is on great form as he chats to host Tom Clarkson about everything from family life to partying, from his debut season at Sauber to his return to the re-named Swiss team for 2019, and from his time at Ferrari and McLaren to his two-year sabbatical from the F1 circus.

Honest, no-nonsense and candid, this is Kimi long form – and not to be missed!
