News about KIMI
Kimi-Matias Räikkönen (born October 17, 1979 in Espoo, Finland) is a race car driver, currently driving for Scuderia Ferrari. He is the reigning Formula One World Drivers' Champion.
He initially entered Formula One as a regular driver for Sauber-Petronas in 2001. After having reached previous success only in inferior open-wheel categories, he was given his Super Licence from FIA after a performance delivery promise from his team boss.[1] Heading to McLaren Mercedes in 2002 became a title contender by finishing runner-up in 2003 and 2005 championships to Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, respectively.
Switching to Ferrari in 2007, he became the highest paid driver in the sport,[2] securing his first Formula One World Drivers' Championship from Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso in a closely contested Formula One season.
Räikkönen is very calm, cool, and calculating in his race strategy - prompting the nickname "Iceman", which is subtly written on the side of his current helmet design. His other nicknames include Kimppa, Räikkä and Kimster (used by his mechanics).
