Kimi Räikkönen is 14th in the 2019 Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship standings.

Formula 1’s 2007 champion Kimi Räikkönen is not worried about Formula 1 being slower in 2021.
Some have expressed fears that the expected 3-4 seconds per lap drop to accommodate cars that are easier to overtake is a step backward for the sport. But 40-year-old Räikkönen told Italian media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport: “It doesn’t matter if in 2021 the cars are a second or three seconds slower.
“If there is a good show, nobody will notice.”
