There was a Raikkonen back on the podium over the weekend, on the karting circuit.
But it wasn’t Kimi. Instead, it was the former Formula 1 driver's son, Robin Ace.
The eight-year-old finished on the podium for the first time on the junior karting circuit.
Sharing a picture of Raikkonen junior on Instagram, Gino Rosato – who worked with Raikkonen at Ferrari – wrote: “That’s my boy at 8 years old fighting 11 years olds, first race on the podium! F1 here we come!”
While Robin Ace is taking his early steps in motorsports, Raikkonen will be hoping that he can follow in his footsteps.
There is a long linage of fathers and sons both competing at the pinnacle of motorsport in differing eras.
