Why relaxed Raikkonen will star in 2019
By:

Formula 1 is already seeing a very different Kimi Raikkonen in 2019 since his switch from Ferrari to Alfa Romeo. This move isn't just about nostalgia or clinging to a place on the grid, as Raikkonen explains in this exclusive interview

Moving from frontrunning Ferrari to a midfield team at the age of 39 is unusual for a driver with such a hugely successful track record as Kimi Raikkonen's. Put that to the man himself, and he doesn't initially bite.

"I don't follow what other people do," is the typically Kimi response. But he builds on that by pointing out that his genuine desire to keep going, even in an Alfa Romeo team that's likely to be further down the grid, is at the heart of his bulletproof popularity with the F1 fanbase. You can tell he appreciates the fact that people get what he's about.
