Watch Kimi Raikkonen’s journey from baby-faced rookie to F1’s most experienced racer


Kimi Raikkonen continues to fascinate Formula 1 fans the world over, the 2007 champion and 21-time race winner regularly topping driver popularity polls despite his, ahem, unconventional approach to his media duties.

In Aramco Presents: Rise of the Rookie – Kimi Raikkonen, we chart his journey from taciturn 21-year-old F1 protege, to taciturn world champion with Ferrari, to taciturn elder statesperson of Formula 1, who can still show the young guns a clean pair of heels at the age of 40.

And with the Finn having become F1’s joint-most experienced driver following his 322nd start at the 2020 Russian Grand Prix last week, enjoy Kimi Raikkonen’s story in the video above.
