Kimi Raikkonen – An inspiration

Raikkonen lines up beside Antonio Giovinazzi one last time, probably. The racer has taught the Italian national a lot in his years with him, and it would be fruitful if Giovanazzi could implement some of it.

The old man on track is a sensation who still has fans when his heydays are long gone, and they’re not wrong in doing so.

The 2007 champion can still take the leaders for a ride if he is sitting in a Mercedes AMG; the race at Portimao explained that very case. The track where champions complained of no grip, Kimi glided 10 positions ahead in the first lap.

Although he is growing old with each year, he has never lost his respect in the grid. Kimi Raikkonen is a model of spirit and motivation for the young racers in the grid. The manner in which he keeps going, pushing year after year, is commendable and a spirit worth yearning for.

2021 is his last season in all possibilities, and it wouldn’t hurt to see him lift up the trophy one last time on the podium. With the regulations promising an equal footing at the start line, who knows, our Iceman may carry himself to the podium.
