Kimi Raikkonen was delivered the gift of a lifetime for his garage collection
Kimi Raikkonen currently drives the Alfa Romeo Racing-Ferrari in the F1 World Championship.
But, back in 2018, the Finnish racing driver was a pilot for Scuderia Ferrari. He drove to a victory in his second to last race with the team.
That win came in the United States at the Circuit of the Americas. The trip to victory lane came toward the very end of a 5-year contract the driver had with the Italian race team.
That was the first and only win for Raikkonen during his drive with the team from 2014-2018. It also took the record for the longest gap between race wins
The win spurred a real reaction from the Iceman via the team radio after the finish, “Yeah, thank you. *ucking finally.”
The driver took the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro team all the way to the championship previously in 2007. That’s still Ferrari’s most recent championship after the recent string of Mercedes domination in the sport.
Raikkonen’s old F1 car now sits in his garage
The 2018 Ferrari SF71H chassis that took the United States Grand Prix win is powered by a Ferrari 062 EVO 1.6 V6 t. And now, it’s been delivered to Raikkonen’s home.
Photos shown above were shared via the driver’s instagram story. They show the F1 car being delivered in a large box then unloaded.
The car now sit’s in Raikkonen’s garage and is surrounded by motorcycles. As previously stated, those bikes are being used to keep the driver in shape amid a wide range of cancellations and postponements.
The series has yet to begin the 2020 season. Currently, tentative plans are to restart the season in Europe come June.
