Kimi Raikkonen he has always identified with great pilots of the past because of his more wayward lifestyle, especially before marrying Minttu Virtanen (currently Minttu Raikkonen), with whom he shares two children, Robin and Rianna Angelia Milana.

Like Raikkonen, he was only champion once, despite being considered by many to be one of the fastest of his time.
