BIO: Kimi-Matias Räikkönen is a Finnish racing driver. He currently drives in Formula One for Lotus. After nine seasons racing in Formula One, in which he won the 2007 Formula One World Drivers' Championship, he competed in the World Rally Championship from 2010–2011. Räikkönen entered Formula One as a regular driver for Sauber-Petronas in 2001. He was given his Super Licence from the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) after a performance delivery promise by his team boss, Peter Sauber. He joined McLaren-Mercedes in 2002, and became a title contender by finishing runner-up in the 2003 and 2005 championships to Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, respectively. Räikkönen switched to Ferrari in 2007, becoming the highest paid driver in motorsport with an estimated wage of $51 million per year. His move to Ferrari saw him secure his first Formula One World Drivers' Championship, beating McLaren drivers Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso by one point, as well as becoming one of the very few drivers to win in their first season at Ferrari. In 2008, he equaled the record for fastest laps in a season for the second time. After another year with the Ferrari F1 team, he left to drive a Citroën C4 WRC for the Citroën Junior Team in the World Rally Championship for 2010. He has dabbled in NASCAR and made his debut for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the Camping World Truck Series. In 2008, Räikkönen was among the two Formula One drivers who made it into the Forbes magazine's The Celebrity 100 list. Recently, Räikkönen has signed a 2 year deal with Lotus starting with the 2012 Formula One season.
