The Finnish racing driver, Kimi Raikkonen, drives in Formula One for Lotus this year. His stint in Formula One started in 2001 with Sauber-Petronas. He joined McLaren Mercedes in 2002 and was very impressive in 2003 and 2005 season as he managed to finish 2nd best. He had a remarkable change of fortune in 2007 as he made a switch to the Ferrari team. He agreed to a wage of $51 million per year and thereby becoming the highest paid driver in motor sport. He is currently in 7th position.   When Kimi Raikkonen joined Ferrari in 2009, he signed a 3 year contract which ran from 2007 - 2009 worth $153,000,000. His average income per game was $2,942,308. It is estimated that in 2009 he earned a minimum of $45 million. There is no concrete information regarding his salary in the World Rally Championship. He was pay driver in NASCAR and he used to shell out $100000 per race. He joined LOTUS in 2012 but we are not sure as to how much the deal is worth. He also has endorsement deals with Shell & Puma.   Kimi has a house in Helsinki but he prefers to spend most of his time in Switzerland. Kimi live in this beautiful country with her wife Jenni. He has a couple of dogs, an Alsatian and a Jack Russell. He lives a very modest life by his standards. He drives a simple Fiat 500 and he is very happy about it. He spends his free time by cooking reindeer meat and pasta. The surprising thing is he shops on his own but avoids the supermarket crowds.   Kimi married Jenni Dahlman in 2004 and they currently live in Switzerland. Jenni was a former Miss Scandinavia and a former top model. He loves and has competed in different kinds of motorsport events. In 2007 he competed in a snowmobile race in Finland and in 2008 it was announced that his face would appear on a set of Finnish postage stamps. Kimi is known for his apparent dislike to appear for media interviews and generally answers media questions in a blunt manner.
