Formula One records and achievements

  • 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 46.
  • 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 third.
  • The 2007 Chinese Grand Prix saw Räikkönen give Scuderia Ferrari as a manufacturer their 200th Formula One GP win, as well as their 600th/601st podium (along with team-mate Felipe Massa who finished in third).
  • At the 2008 French Grand Prix Räikkönen gave Ferrari their 200th pole position.
  • The 2016 Russian Grand Prix saw Räikkönen give Scuderia Ferrari their 700th podium as a manufacturer (it was only their 695th podium as a team).
  • 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, fastest laps, and race wins.
  • 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 most second and third placed podium finishes combined (80).
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the most podiums at the same Grand Prix (9), which he has achieved at the Hungarian Grand Prix (2003, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2017, 2018).
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the most race starts between successive pole positions, with 129 starts between his pole positions at the 2008 French Grand Prix and 2017 Monaco Grand Prix.
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the fastest ever lap recorded in F1 history at the 2018 Italian Grand Prix qualifying session with a time of 1m 19.119s, averaging 263.588 kilometres (163.786 miles) per hour.
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the most races between Grand Prix wins, winning the 2018 United States Grand Prix 113 races after his 2013 Australian Grand Prix victory.
  • Räikkönen holds the record for the biggest gap between first and last career wins, winning the 2018 United States Grand Prix 5,691 days after his 2003 Malaysian Grand Prix victory.
