Raikkonen back on top after more than five years

The last time Kimi Raikkonen stood on top of a Formula One podium, Lewis Hamilton had just joined Mercedes with one championship to his name and Sebastian Vettel was riding high with Red Bull.

The 39-year-old Finn’s victory for Ferrari in Sunday’s U.S. Grand Prix ended a winless run of 113 races dating back to victory with Lotus in Australia in March 2013.

In the 2,044 days since then, Lotus have disappeared, taken over by Renault, and Hamilton is on the brink of celebrating his fifth championship.

While Italian Riccardo Patrese waited six years and seven months and 99 races between his 1983 South African Grand Prix victory and 1990 San Marino win, Raikkonen has set a record for most races between wins.

It may well prove to be his last, but such thoughts were for another time. (Reuters)
