Hungary is the closest Finnish drivers get to a home Grand Prix according to the man himself – Kimi Raikkonen. We’ve seen hundreds of Finnish flags waving there for Kimi, as well as ex-F1 driver and double champion Mika Hakkinen. Here’s a quick look at the Iceman’s history at the circuit:
Finished just outside of the points with Sauber in 7th place.
Qualified 11th in the McLaren, finished 4th. We were given a taster of Kimi’s early combat skills when he tackled Montoya in the Williams:
Qualified 7th, took his first podium at Hungary in 2nd.
Qualified 11th, retired on lap 10 with electrical issue.
Qualified 4th. Race day was a different story – took the fastest lap and the win with the beautiful MP4/20.
Pole position with 1.19.599.
Did not finish the wet race, as Kimi crashed while trying to lap a confused Torro Rosso of Liuzzi’s:
Qualified 4th in the Ferrari. Set the fastest lap of the race. Finished on podium in 2nd.
Qualified 6th. Iceman took the fastest lap once again in the race and finished 3rd.
In his last Hungaroring outing, Kimi qualified 7th and finished the race on the podium in 2nd.
