Veteran Räikkönen for Another Year in Formula 1 at Alfa Romeo

Kimi Räikkönen will continue in Formula 1 for another year. The 41-year-old Finn will also occupy one of the seats at Alfa Romeo in 2021.


It will be his nineteenth season in the premier class of motorsport.

Räikkönen already holds the record for the driver with the most participation in GrandPrix races. He will start his 325th Formula 1 appearance this weekend in the Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna.

The Finn won 21 races in his career and was crowned world champion in 2007, the last to produce Ferrari.

Italian Antonio Giovinazzi was unsure for a long time whether he could keep his seat at Alfa Romeo. Mick Schumacher, the son of German Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, would be the leading candidate.

The team management has still given preference to the 26-year-old Giovinazzi, who will start his third year at Alfa Romeo, formerly Sauber in 2021.
