The Iceman came back to Ferrari in 2014 after a stint away - although he remains the team's most recent world championship winner.
Vettel would link up with the Finn in 2015 after leaving Red Bull, where he grabbed his four consecutive world championships between 2010 and 2013.
In their four years together before Raikkonen left for Alfa Romeo in 2019, the two shared a great bond on and off the track, and one moment in particular stands out that highlights their close friendship.
Epic video of Vettel and Raikkonen bond resurfaces
In a post on the official F1 X account, the clip in question refers to the 2015 Singapore Grand Prix, where Vettel converted pole position to win the race, while his team-mate came home in third.
The team is seen preparing for their post-race celebrations, including Raikkonen, when Vettel appears from the garage in high spirits after his win, only for him to discover that only his name is displayed on the team’s pit board.
Clearly outraged at this, Vettel refuses to let his team-mate miss out on the celebrations and sure enough, the Ferrari mechanics return with Raikkonen’s name and the Finnish flag displayed on the board alongside Vettel.
The amazing video left fans reminiscing over how good the dup were together and how they are sorely missed on the F1 grid after their retirements.
“Seb and Kimi were such a great duo on and off the track!” said one user.
