Kimi Raikkonen Merchandise: Kimi Raikkonen is possibly one of the most popular F1 drivers. Until recently, he did not have much of a social media presence, unlike his contemporaries. His don’t-care attitude is one quality that endears him to many fans.

When he speaks, he is brutally blunt as he can be and isn’t afraid of political correctness. Some of his repartees are humorous and meme-worthy.

At the age of twenty-one, Kimi Raikkonen was the youngest driver on the grid in 2001, and the year before would not have believed that he would be in F1 in 2001.

Sauber immediately knew they had discovered the new big talent in motorsport, and it took some conniving the FIA that Raikkonen had the experience to drive in F1, despite only competing in just twenty-one races before he claimed the Sauber seat in 2001 alongside Nick Heidfeld.
