About the Author

Kari Hotakainen is a bestselling and award-winning Finnish novelist and author. He has written 22 books, several of which have been made into films, and he has been translated into more than 20 languages. This is his first work of non-fiction. 


'I loved it. I thought it was fascinating - really, really interesting story that he's got to tell... This book gives us that insight [into the Kimi Räikkönen world]… If you have even the mildest interest and intrigue about Kimi...then you need to go and get this book and read it. I've known him for years and I learned an awful lot.'
*Marc Priestley*

‘Räikkönen’s monosyllabic nature during TV interviews has earned him millions of fans and this authorised biography by Kari Hotakainen sees him open up on his personal and professional life, together with never-seen-before pictures. It is a great insight into Räikkönen with a combination of his home life and Formula One stories from behind the scenes and some of the biggest moments in his career.’
*Daily Express*

‘Enigmatic and private, Ferrari’s former world champion driver rarely opens up to outsiders, but he granted Hotakainen exclusive access to his world and his way of thinking … With all the raw excitement of Formula One and the insight of the best biographies, this will delight all fans of motorsport and those who have long revered the elusive Finn.’ 
*Blackpool Gazette*

‘Conceptually this is perhaps the least likely book ever to have been scripted – and therein lies its appeal … This is an attempt to portray the real Kimi Räikkönen, warts and all, and it does so in a balanced manner.’
*Motorsport Magazine*

‘Childhood poverty, running away from military service to make a race, and going on benders between Formula One races are some of the revelations in this new book that sheds light on the life of usually taciturn Finnish driver Kimi Räikkönen.’
