In his own words: The secret to Raikkonen's F1 longevity
Kimi Raikkonen was predictably underwhelmed when he became F1's most experienced driver at the Eifel Grand Prix, but in an exclusive and revealing interview with Autosport, that could be part of the secret of his success
Does a 40-year-old driver deserve a spot at the pinnacle of motorsport when there are countless young hopefuls trying to break through? Should a driver with two points in 11 races in 2020 keep their seat for next year? Is one win in seven years, and 21 in total, an accurate reflection of prodigious ability? Is one title enough to be a Formula 1 legend?
Does Kimi Raikkonen care about any of the above? Of course he doesn't. Raikkonen, the Iceman, has made a career out of not caring. It's his niche, what makes him a cult hero (a status perhaps aided by his world title triumph being 13 years ago). He's a driver who says what he thinks, if anything, and doesn't care if anyone is listening.

This is another example of Formula 1 and the FIA scoring an own goal by forgetting what makes motorsport magic, with the Istanbul race winner also a victim of this in the championship’s recent history
Starting 11th after his engine change grid penalty, Lewis Hamilton faced a tough task to repeat his Turkish Grand Prix heroics of 2020 - despite making strong early progress in the wet. Instead, his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas broke through for a first win of the year to mitigate Max Verstappen re-taking the points lead
Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton dominated the opening day of action for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix, on the Istanbul circuit’s much improved track surface. But the Black Arrows squad’s position isn’t quite what it seems. Here’s why
On 8 October 1961, Innes Ireland claimed victory at the United States Grand Prix to herald the true arrival of a new Formula 1 giant. While Team Lotus endured plenty of highs and lows until the team folded over three decades later, Colin Chapman's squad made F1 history and helped shape the championship
