Formula One records and achievements

  • In 2005 Räikkönen equalled the record of wins in a single season without winning the World Title (7), shared with four time World Champion Alain Prost, who initially set the record in 1984 and matched it in 1988, and also with Michael Schumacher, in 2006.
  • In the 2005 and 2008 seasons, he equalled Michael Schumacher’s record of 10 fastest race laps in a season, set in 2004.
  • He holds the second highest record for total fastest laps at 42.
  • In 2008, Räikkönen scored six consecutive fastest race laps (in Spain, Turkey, Monaco, Canada, France and Britain), equalling Alberto Ascari’s record for the most consecutive fastest laps in a single season and placing him one behind Ascari’s overall record of seven consecutive fastest laps (which were split across two seasons: six in 1952 and one in 1953).
  • He was the first driver to win on his Ferrari debut since Nigel Mansell at the 1989 Brazilian Grand Prix and the first to win, set the fastest lap and pole position on his Ferrari debut since Juan Manuel Fangio at the 1956 Argentine Grand Prix. His replacement Fernando Alonso also won on his Ferrari debut at the 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix, setting the fastest lap on the way; however Alonso only qualified 3rd.
  • Following Michael Schumacher’s retirement at the end of 2006, Räikkönen was the highest-paid driver in Formula One, with a reputed base salary of $51 m per year.[4]
  • The 2007 Chinese Grand Prix saw Räikkönen give Scuderia Ferrari their 200th Formula One GP win, as well as their 600th podium (along with team-mate Felipe Massa who finished in 3rd).
  • At the 2008 French Grand Prix Räikkönen gave Ferrari their 200th pole position.
  • Räikkönen is the second driver to win the World Championship after being third in the drivers standings before the final race. Giuseppe Farina, the first F1 World Champion, was the first to do this in 1950, beating Juan Manuel Fangio by three points and Luigi Fagioli by six points. Sebastian Vettel repeated this feat in 2010, when he won the championship at the 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
  • Räikkönen is the third Ferrari driver after Juan Manuel Fangio and Jody Scheckter to win the world title in their first year with the team.
  • Räikkönen is the third Finnish driver to win the World Championship, after Keke Rosberg and Mika Häkkinen. He is also the most successful Finnish Formula One driver in terms of points, podium finishes and fastest laps, and shares the most wins with Mika Häkkinen.
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the most wins in a debut year with Ferrari with 6, beating Alain Prost’s previous record of 5 from 1990.
  • Räikkönen achieved Lotus F1’s first race win at the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the most classified finishes in a single season: 20 out of 20 in 2012.
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the most points finishes in a single season: 19 out of 20 in 2012.
  • Räikkönen holds the record (jointly with Michael Schumacher) for most fastest laps (5) at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit (2002, 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2013).
  • Räikkönen holds the record for most consecutive point finishes: 27, starting with the 2012 Bahrain Grand Prix and ending with the 2013 Hungarian Grand Prix.
