Alfa Romeo Racing
Kimi Raikkonen started his career with Swiss outfit Sauber Petronas. Early-on in his F1-career, his talent was discovered by former McLaren team boss Ron Dennis and Kimi ended up signing for McLaren as a replacement for the departing Mika Hakkinen. Raikkonen was seen as one of the fastest drivers of his generation and got the nickname 'The Iceman' for his typical lack of emotion on his face. In 2007, he signed a contract with Ferrari and immediately won the world title that year. Raikkonen took a hiatus from F1 to go rallying in 2010, but after a year he returned to Formula 1 for Lotus. From 2014 till 2018 the Fin drove for Ferrari and in 2019 will drive for Alfa Romeo alongside Antonio Giovinazzi.
