Räikkönen still knows F1 as his own sport

Kimi Räikkönen comes back to Formula 1 after spending two years in WRC. Lotus-Renault – to be named Lotus in 2012 – announced Tuesday morning the two-year deal with Räikkönen.

– I felt fine in WRC, too. But all the time I have missing racing. The longer you stay away from it, the more you miss it. It’s good time to come back. Obviously, it’s still F1 and I have been doing it one third of my life time, already, says Räikkönen to Turun Sanomat.

October 17th Räikkönen became 32 years of age. From 2001 to 2009 Räikkönen had 156 Grands Prix with Sauber, McLaren and Ferrari. He is the world championship with Ferrari from the super exciting season 2007 and he is the last driver, who has brought to championship to Maranello.

Räikkönen has won 18 times and been on the podium 62 times. He has 16 pole positions in his merit list and he has started the GP 31 times from the first row.

The comeback of Räikkönen makes history to F1. First time ever in the season 2012 there will be six world champions racing against each other.
