Kimi Raikkonen has cut a frustrating figure in Formula 1 in recent years. A driver capable of great things but delivering them sparingly, one inspiring great fan devotion yet rarely rewarding it with his results. In the 99 starts of his second Ferrari stint, he resembled a top liner only in brief flashes and rarely strung together the consistently strong race weekends required of a true top gun.
He clogged up a top seat for five years, occupying a car that could have been put to better use by others, and made the battle at the front more one-dimensional. He looked like a man of the past and, save for that glorious day at Austin last year where he nailed it with victory, he largely was - despite last year being the best season of his Ferrari comeback.
Aston Martin’s only previous foray into Formula 1 in the late 1950s was a short-lived and unsuccessful affair. But it could have been so different, says Nigel Roebuck.

Back in 1993 though, Marco Apicella was an F1 driver for just 800m before a first corner fracas ended his career. Here’s the story of his very short time at motorsport’s pinnacle.
Kimi Raikkonen's emergence as a Formula 1 star in his rookie campaign remains one of the legendary storylines from 2001, but his exploits had an unwanted impact on his Sauber teammate's own prospects. Twenty years on from his first F1 podium at the Brazilian GP, here's how Nick Heidfeld's career was chilled by the Iceman.
Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton took victory at the Bahrain Grand Prix despite, for a change, not having the quickest car. But any hopes of developing its W12 to surpass Red Bull's RB16B in terms of outright speed could not have come at a worse time.
Max Verstappen lost out to Lewis Hamilton at the Bahrain Grand Prix by a tiny margin, slipping off the track just as victory was within his grasp. But the painful lesson from defeat can only help Verstappen come back even stronger
