Kimi Raikkonen World Champion
Kimi Raikkonen celebrates in style his 28th birthday (17th of October) by becoming the 29th Formula One World Champion. Of the 29 champions, he is the seventh youngest:
|1||24y 02m 17d||F. Alonso||2005|
|2||25y 09m 26d||E. Fittipaldi||1972|
|3||25y 10m 10d||M. Schumacher||1994|

• Raikkonen won the title in his first year in Ferrari, something that in the past was achieved only by Juan Manuel Fangio in 1957 and Jody Scheckter in 1979.
• He is the third Finn to take the title after Keke Rosberg in 1982 (who incidentally raced with the same No. 6 as Raikkonen did this year) and Mika Hakkinen in 1998 and 1999.
