Kimi Raikkonen will call time on his 20-year career in Formula 1 when the chequered flag drops in Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Raikkonen burst onto the F1 scene with Sauber back in 2001 and his rapid pace quickly secured a step up to McLaren, where he claimed his first victories and challenged for the world title. Having missed out on the ultimate prize at Woking, he made the switch to Ferrari and achieved his dream in 2007.

Across two decades, the Finn has notched up 18 pole positions, 21 wins and 103 podiums, while gaining a huge fanbase for his straightforward and no-nonsense approach.

Ahead of his final race, Raikkonen and F1 teamed up to produce a special cartoon of his career, voiced by the man himself.

Check out Raikkonen's reflections in the video below!
