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.

Ferrari is starting its post-Sebastian Vettel age by welcoming Carlos Sainz Jr in alongside Charles Leclerc. But while Sainz has a tough challenge to match his new team-mate, Ferrari is also sending a message that previous intra-team spats must end
