Raikkonen back in the limelight at FIA gala with beautiful move

When you think of Kimi Raikkonen at the FIA gala, you soon see the images of two years ago, when the Finn had looked a little too deeply into the glass and then had a great time on the stage in Monaco. This year he is once again in the limelight, this time for his actions on the track.

Raikkonen doesn't do crazy things on the circuit

He will be awarded the prize for the best catch-up action of the year. Although the Alfa Romeo had one of the slowest cars this season, Raikkonen showed on the damp circuit of Portimao why he is still a valued driver on the grid after 20 years.

His very sharpest edges may be off, but in recent years Raikkonen has mainly been known for driving very smart. In battles he always leaves enough space and chooses position in a convenient way. The start of the Portuguese Grand Prix was the ultimate example of this.
