Kimi Raikkonen is the most experienced driver of all the 2019 grid and even the 2020 grid. The 40-year-old driver changed of team in 2019 from Ferrari to Alfa Romeo. The Finnish driver was and will be the teammate of the Italian driver, Antonio Giovinazzi. Kimi was probably the most consistent driver (excluding the top 6 drivers) of the grid. And here is the summarize of Kimi’s 2019 season.

As usual, the season began in Australia and Kimi was able to score his first points of 2019, he finished on P8 and scored 4 points. Bahrain was another good one, in which Kimi scored another 6 points as he finished P7. China didn’t disappoint us, as he scored another 2 points with a P9. The Azerbaijan Grand Prix was another excellent race for Kimi, as he managed to finish on P10 and scored 1 point. Unfortunately, his good streak came to its finish and the in next three races (Spain, Monaco and Canada) he didn’t score any points. But, in the French Grand Prix, once again, he was able to score 6 points as he finished P7. Austria and Great Britain were the next two races and he scored 2 points in Austria and 4 more in British territory. Germany was a disappointing race of the Finnish driver but in the last race before the summer break, but in Hungary, he finished on P7 and he brought home 6 more points. In the first half of the season, he scored points in 8 races out of 12, and a total of 31 points.

The second half of the season was much worse. I can say that it was maybe the worst second half of the season, excluding both Williams. Kimi did not score any points in any of the final 9 races, except in the Brazilian Grand Prix, in which he finished on P4 and scored 12 points. It was a very disappointing second half of the season for Kimi and, as a result, he finished P12 with 43 points with Lando in 6 points ahead of him, and Nico Hulkenberg 6 points behind of him. Will his Alfa Romeo be better next season? Will he be able to fight with Renault and McLaren for being best of the rest?
