“To be honest, I don’t really care,” says Räikkönen, who is nicknamed ‘The Iceman’ for a reason. “If someone asked me how many races I have done, I really would have no idea. I am here because I love to race. I still enjoy that. ”
The 40-year-old Finn equaled Barrichello’s record two weeks ago in Russia.
Hamilton could have matched Michael Schumacher’s record victories in Formula 1 in Sochi, but the Briton was stuck at ninety. On Sunday, Hamilton will have another chance to claim his 91st victory. The Mercedes leader is also well on his way to equal Schumacher as the record champion in Formula 1. Hamilton is heading for his seventh world title almost unthreatened.
Räikkönen made his debut in Formula 1 in 2001. Six years later he became world champion in a Ferrari. It looks like the Finn will renew his contract with Alfa Romeo for another year. He may have Mick Schumacher, the ‘son of’, next to him next season. The 21-year-old German can already drive an Alfa Romeo car in the first free practice for the GP of the Eifel on Friday.
