The nickname of Kimi Räikkönen. Kimi (born October 17, 1979 in Espoo, Finland) is a race car driver, currently driving for Scuderia Ferrari. He is the reigning Formula One World Drivers' Champion.
He initially entered Formula One as a regular driver for Sauber-Petronas in 2001. After having reached previous success only in inferior open-wheel categories, he was given his Super Licence from FIA after a performance delivery promise from his team boss. Heading to McLaren Mercedes in 2002 he was nicknamed Iceman and began to be recognized as a title contender by marginally losing the 2003 and 2005 championships to Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, respectively.
Switching to Ferrari in 2007, he became the highest paid driver in the sport, securing his first Formula One World Drivers' Championship from Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso in a closely contested Formula One season.
