Raikkonen announces return to racing

Kimi Raikkonen decided to retire from Formula 1 last season. However, it by no means means that the Finn is getting bored, as he has already found a new challenge in his life.

Raikkonen has never been one to hide his love for motocross and is going to get involved in it next season. He will be working in MXGP for the Kawasaki Racing Team, where he will be responsible for the team's management.

Raikkonen is not expected to be involved with the team on a daily basis. The Scandinavian will in fact be given the task of keeping an eye on the strategic aspect of the team and making adjustments where possible. Thereby he indicates the official website of Formula 1 that he will take his new role very seriously and wants to get everything out of the team. The former Formula 1 driver will take on his role together with Antti Pyrhonen.

Raikkonen said goodbye to Formula 1

Raikkonen has had a rich career. The driver once started at Sauber, after which he appeared for McLaren, Ferrari, Lotus and Alfa Romeo. In 2007 he managed to win his only world title.
