Kimi Räikkönen is, without a doubt, the most internationally known Finn of the 21st century.
A top tier F1 career spanning over two decades is no mean feat and now, as he approaches the home stretch, Kimi has the special honour of being the driver who has competed in the most F1 races ever.
Now, for the first time, Finland’s most experienced F1 journalist Heikki Kulta, whose own Grand Prix career is even longer than Kimi’s, has written a book about the decades he has spent by Kimi’s side.
Kulta has followed F1, and Kimi’s journey, for years. In Iceman – Kimi Räikkönen’s Journey, he explores Kimi’s emotional journey: from all the races, to his home life, and everything in between.

“Kari Hotakainen wrote his book on Kimi Räikkönen from a clean slate, without knowing much about the area or the subject in advance. Now Finland’s most experienced F1 journalist Heikki Kulta has done the opposite. At over 400 pages long, ICEMAN – KIMI RÄIKKÖNEN’S JOURNEY is a wonderful non-fiction book, written by someone who knows practically everything there is to know about Kimi. Kulta has followed Kimi’s career from the very beginning. He has managed to establish a rare relationship of trust with the F1 star, which is something that shines through in his writing. Reading this book gives you a rare insight into Kimi’s world, but also into the world of F1 journalism.” — Marja Aanipuro, Apu magazine
