Rubens Barrichello was 39-year-old when he ended his Formula One career after all 323 starts. Kimi Reiikkunen is already 40 and is likely to break the Barrichello record next year.
But is there no more Reiikkunen after that or is there something else? Even the Iceman does not know how to say this at the moment.
He can only answer one of these questions, according to Ruikkunen: “I have a contract for next year.” He wants to leave everything else to himself. I never thought so many years in advance. So let’s have a look,”he says.
At the moment, he has”zero interest”in dealing with a possible withdrawal from formula 1. We now want to finish 2019 well, analyze the year and then prepare for 2020.”
This is necessary, considering the recent curve of shape at the Alfa Romeo team of King of the Rhine: Since the summer break only Antonio Giovinazzi has scored twice and taken three counters in total, Rowing kings, on the other hand, did not have a top-10 result.

Does he still enjoy it? “I don’t like it when things don’t go well. I don’t think anyone’s happy about that. It’s always been that way in racing. If it goes well and the results are right, everyone is happy. But sometimes you have races that run better or worse. It does not follow, however, that I suddenly love or hate Formula 1.”
Being old in comparison to its Formula 1 rivals does not matter. Strictly speaking, it’s a number,”says Tricksters. It just sounds different, that’s all.”
That’s why he doesn’t give a damn about his long career in formula 1, which 2001 started at Clean.” I’m not proud of it, I don’t think it’s good or bad,”he says. I’m just doing it because it gives me pleasure. If it doesn’t, I have a lot of other things I can do.”
