Does a 40-year-old driver deserve a spot at the pinnacle of motorsport when there are countless young hopefuls trying to break through? Should a driver with two points in 11 races in 2020 keep their seat for next year? Is one win in seven years, and 21 in total, an accurate reflection of prodigious ability? Is one title enough to be a Formula 1 legend?
Does Kimi Raikkonen care about any of the above? Of course he doesn't. Raikkonen, the Iceman, has made a career out of not caring. It's his niche, what makes him a cult hero (a status perhaps aided by his world title triumph being 13 years ago). He's a driver who says what he thinks, if anything, and doesn't care if anyone is listening.
But this is the thing - Raikkonen has just become F1's most experienced driver of all time. Even if motorsport wasn't naturally geared towards statistical salivation, the list of names to have held that accolade is impressive. To name but a few: Juan Manuel Fangio, Graham Hill... now Raikkonen.
