Kimi Raikkonen Announces His Retirement At The End of The 2021 Season
He’s one of the most popular drivers – with fans and amongst drivers. Known as the “Iceman”, Kimi Raikkonen has announced that he will be retiring from Formula 1 at the end of the 2021 season.
Racing in Formula 1 since 2001, he became the World Champion in 2007 and to date, he is the driver who has competed in more races than any other driver in the sport’s history.
Taking to his Instagram account to make the announcement, he wrote: “This is it. This will be my last season in Formula 1. This is a decision I did during last winter. It was not an easy decision but after this season it is time for new things. Even though the season is still on, I want to thank my family, all my teams, everyone involved in my racing career and especially all of you great fans that have been rooting for me all this time. Formula 1 might come to an end for me but there is a lot more in life that I want to experience and enjoy,. See you around after all of this! Sincerely Kimi.”
Since last week, there’s been a lot of talk surrounding George Russell and the latest is that he has been tipped to replace Valtteri Bottas at Mercedes with reports now saying the Bottas is now considered to be the new favourite to replace Kimi Raikkonen at Alfa Romeo.
The reports haven’t been confirmed, it’s just something that we’re currently hearing…
