Kimi Raikkonen’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

2007 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen is arguably the most popular Formula 1 driver. His straight-talking, no-nonsense attitude has a fanbase of its own in the F1 circuit. Kimi’s nonchalant style and outlook towards racing and life have earned him the moniker of ‘Iceman’ among fans and experts alike.

The Finn made his Formula One debut back in 2001, along with Fernando Alonso and Juan Pablo Montoya. He raced for Sauber in his maiden season before jumping ship to McLaren. He would remain with the team until 2006 and moved to Ferrari a year later.

Kimi Raikkonen tried his hand at rallying for a brief period before returning to F1 in 2o12. Raikkonen spent two seasons at Lotus before rejoining Ferrari in 2014.

After 5 seasons at the Scuderia, Kimi moved on to Alfa Romeo. The Iceman had come full circle.

On-track Achievements

The veteran driver scored his first podium in his very first race for McLaren. A win came his way a year later at the Malaysian Grand Prix. In 16 seasons, Raikkonen has finished in the Top-5 at least 10 times.

Finally, his moment of glory came in 2007 when he took advantage of the warring duo of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton. His win streak dried up after the 2013 Australian Grand Prix. But he broke that jinx at the 2018 US Grand Prix.

In a career spanning nearly 2 decades, Raikkonen picked up 21 wins and 103 podiums. Kimi Raikkonen is on target to become Formula 1’s most experienced driver with over 300 race starts.

He currently races for the Alfa Romeo team, even at the age of 40.

When Raikkonen signed for Ferrari for the second time, he limited his personal endorsement opportunities. However, he has been sponsored by the likes of Oakley and Wrangler.

Noted Thai beer company Singha and Finnish locking solutions brand iLoq currently sponsor Raikkonen.

Contacting Kimi Raikkonen

Being the Iceman, Kimi Raikkonen isn’t exactly a very “chatty” personality. He likes to do his job and get on with life. As a result, he isn’t the most engaging or “open” driver in F1. But that is slowly changing.

In late 2017, Kimi finally joined social media to connect with fans and express himself. He has an official Instagram account where he usually posts a variety of things in and out of the F1 world.

Passionate fans can connect with Raikkonen via his Instagram.

Sadly, Kimi has no other social media platforms (Twitter or Facebook). But you never know, Kimi may just widen his social media presence in the future.

Kimi Raikkonen’s house, personal life, and off-track endeavors

The majority of rich and successful F1 drivers tend to choose Monaco as their official residence because of the “amazing views” but Kimi isn’t one of them.

The Iceman has two residences – one in his native Finland while the other is in Switzerland. However, Raikkonen tends to spend a great deal of time in his luxurious house in Baar, Switzerland.
