According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Raikkonen family has chosen to relocate from their previous residence in Switzerland to the city of Como, Italy. This move is strategically positioned as it offers easy access to the various international karting circuits in Northern Italy, making it an ideal location for their karting pursuits.
As per the report, Raikkonen has acquired two properties in Italy - a farmhouse named 'Il Torchio' and an apartment located in the heart of Como. These will serve as the residences for Raikkonen, his wife Minttu, and their three children: Robin, Rianna, and Grace. The family will live in the apartment while renovations continue on the farmhouse.
Although Raikkonen had initially expressed his reluctance to guide his son Robin toward a career in racing, it's evident that Robin possesses the talent and determination to pursue his father's path.
