Iceman finally gets his world crown

October 22, 2007
Kimi Raikkonen never gave up his dream of winning the Formula One world championship even when all the odds seemed stacked against him.

Ferrari's 28-year-old Finnish 'Iceman', twice before a runner-up in the title standings with his former team McLaren, finally reaped the rewards on Sunday with victory in the Brazilian season-ender.

After trailing McLaren's Lewis Hamilton by 17 points before the previous Chinese Grand Prix, Raikkonen took the maximum score from the last two races of the season to emerge as champion by a single point.
