WATCH: That amazing Suzuka victory and Lap 1 heroics – 10 moments of brilliance from Kimi Raikkonen


Despite being one of the least talkative drivers in Formula 1, Kimi Raikkonen is undoubtedly one of the most popular – and a glance at his highlights reel in the video above will tell you exactly why the taciturn Finn has so many fans.

The phrase 'he prefers to do his talking on the track' could have been invented for Raikkonen, who burst on to the F1 scene back in 2001 and 20 years later, is still here.
