Today marks nine years since Kimi Raikkonen won the Formula One world championship.

The Finn moved to Ferrari in 2007, to replace Michael Schumacher, after five seasons at McLaren. He was the pre-season favourite for the title, but endured  an up-and-down season, despite winning the season opening Australian Grand Prix.

However, a late season resurgence saw him win three of the last four races which was enough to beat rookie Lewis Hamilton and reigning champion Fernando Alonso to the title by just one point.
