Historical Snippet Part 4 - 4 Sep 2013

Some more recent history

Kimi Raikkonen had a meteoric rise through the lower ranks to become a Grand Prix driver. Here we see him dominating the Snetterton round of the Formula Renault UK Championship in his Manor Motorsport car, on 8th July 2000 at the BTCC night races meeting.

After winning the championship, the F3 and F3000 rungs on the ladder were skipped completely, the following year he was an F1 driver for Sauber, becoming World Champion for Ferrari in 2007 and a fans favourite in modern day Grand Prix racing.
