Remembering Ferrari’s last World Driver’s Champion

The 2023 Formula One World Championship is just a number of weeks away, and excitement has already reached a fever pitch. Also, the 2022 campaign was the first season in Lewis Hamilton’s illustrious career where he didn’t pick up at least one win, and his fans will be hoping to see him return to the title fight next season. As such, the 2023 season marks 15 years since one of their drivers last won the World Championship. The campaign will always be remembered for Finland’s Kimi Räikkönen, who stormed to his first championship win after coming out on top in an incredibly tight race against Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso. He was leading the race from Räikkönen in changing conditions; however, as the track began to dry out, he lost his lead to the Finn. Räikkönen would go on to seal the victory, with Alonso finishing second and setting up one final battle between the trio in Brazil. Räikkönen was now in the box seat for the championship. He was leading the race, and his teammate Felipe Massa was behind him, with Alonso in third.
