The Brazilian Grand Prix which takes place today marks Kimi Raikkonen’s 150th start for Scuderia Ferrari.

The Iceman who has just two Grand Prix left with the Prancing Horse before he moves to the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team has been extremely consistent during the 2018 season.

The Finn has scored eleven podium finishes this season including a well earned victory at the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin Texas.

Kimi also scored a pole position for Ferrari’s home race in Italy at the Monza circuit.

The Iceman is in third place in the championship, 58 points behind Sebastian Vettel in the race for second in the championship.

Speaking after qualifying in fourth place for the Brazilian Grand Prix, Raikkonen said:

Considering how difficult the weekend has been so far, this qualifying has been our best session. The result is obviously not ideal but we did a good job. I was happy with my car and that’s a positive thing for tomorrow. In Q2 the conditions were tricky, there was risk of rain, but we decided to go out with the Soft tires to try and start the race on that compound and it worked. We think this is the best option for us, but now we’ll see,  as there are many things that can happen in the race. On my last attempt I did a very good first part of the lap, but then I fell off a little bit in the last sector; I tried to get it back on the last corner but could not improve my lap time. The time difference with the guys at the front is very small, it was a close battle; the race will be very interesting tomorrow
