Kimi Raikkonen first interview after signing for Sauber team – Year, 2000

Kimi Raikkonen’s first interview as a F1 driver, days after signing for Sauber Formula 1 team.

Kimi’s first year showed that he is a class – no one had any doubt on him after the first season, it was one of the best team who signed him in his second year in F1, the McLaren team.

However, McLaren couldn’t built him a winning car during his year at the team – in 2005 he had a great car but reability wasn’t as good as Renault had that year.

Raikkonen in 2007 joined Scuderia Ferrari, where he finally had a winning car in his hand, beating two great drivers for the championship, Alonso and Hamilton at McLaren.

Raikkonen continued for another two years at Ferrari but unable to win again, at the end of 2009, the Finn decided to retire from F1.

In 2012 Raikkonen decided to comeback in F1 driving for Lotus team, where he spent two years at the team, before joining at Ferrari again in 2014.
