Kimi Raikkonen will close the curtains on his lengthy and distinguished Formula 1 career at season’s end.
World champion 2007: 41-year-old has been driving for Alfa Romeo since 2001, when he started his F1 career.
Raikkonen announced his retirement via Instagram. It will be my final season with Formula 1.
This is the decision that I made last winter. Although it was not an easy choice, this is the right time to start fresh.
Even though it is over, I would like to say thank you to my family, my team, my entire racing community, and all those who supported me throughout my career.
While Formula 1 may be over for me, there are many more things in my life I would like to do and see. We’ll see you again after this. Sincerely Kimi.
More information to come…
