In the F1 Eiffel Grand Prix last weekend, two veterans Raikkonen and Hamilton took the limelight before and after the race respectively. KIMI ushered in its 323rd race, surpassing Barrichello to become the driver with the most races in F1 history. This Saturday (October 17), the Finnish Iceman will celebrate his 41st birthday. Starting from the 2001 Australian Grand Prix, this year is Raikkonen’s 18th season in F1. The reason why he “missed” two seasons is because he briefly left F1 in 2010 and 2011 to accept other racing events. Challenges.
KIMI, who has always been silent and has a distinct personality, still maintains a cold style in front of the record. He doesn't care about becoming the most contested driver in F1 history. In Raikkonen's eyes, enjoying the race is more important than anything else. In 2007, in the first season he switched to Ferrari, he won the Drivers World Championship. Since then, the Prancing Horse has never produced a Drivers Championship.
As for the future, it was reported earlier this month that in 2021, Raikkonen might be partnering with Michael Schumacher’s son Mick Schumacher in Alfa Romeo. If this is the case, of course it is a good thing. You know, 39-year-old Alonso will also return to F1 next year.
Compared with Raikkonen and Alonso, the 35-year-old Hamilton is slightly less senior but has more honors. Just last Sunday, the British driving the Mercedes W11 car won his 91st race victory in F1, and thus tied the creation of Michael Schumacher at the 2006 Chinese Grand Prix. Historical records, it is worth mentioning that Schumi was 37 years old when he set the record.
In fact, Hamilton is second only to Raikkonen in the age of active F1 drivers. He has also changed from a small man in the mouth of a car fan to an old man, but because he is outside the paddock, Hamilton is very close to the fashion circle, so the outside world His given impression will more or less "decrease" by a few years. Even if he grows older compared to the past, what Hamilton has shown on the track is not a lingering and old age, but more mature and steady taking care of the overall situation.
Since participating in kart racing at the age of 8, Hamilton has shown good racing talents, from karts to F3, GP2, and then to F1; in F1 for 14 years, the worst ranking in the year-end drivers' standings was also during McLaren. In the fifth place, he switched to Mercedes in 2013, especially when he entered the turbocharged V6 era, he reached another level.
A number of records that were originally untouchable from the outside world have all been broken by Hamilton. 96 pole positions, 56 Pole to win, 3661 points, 160 podiums... Not surprisingly, at the end of this season, he will win the seventh world championship title, thus tying another record set by Michael Schumacher in 2004.
At present, the contract between Hamilton and Mercedes will expire at the end of this year. However, according to the latest news from foreign media, the two parties have made breakthroughs in contract renewal negotiations and basically reached a consensus on the details. Hamilton is close to completing one with Tripoint A three-year new contract with a total salary of 120 million pounds. If this is the case, Hamilton will play for Mei Ben for at least 11 years and will continue to gallop on the F1 track by the end of 2023. It is not surprising if he works hard to reach 40.
Although F1 is a project with high requirements for physical fitness and spirit, there are still some "old legends" in the early days. Like Argentine star Fangio, he was 40 years old when he won the world championship for the first time, and he was 46 years, 1 month and 11 days when he won his fifth championship. The record of F1's oldest world championship has been maintained to this day.
In addition, in the past 70 years, the proportion of F1 world champions who won the championship at their 30+ years (including 30 years old) or older was close to 65%. As for the oldest record for the competition, it was set by Monaco driver Chiron in 1955, when he completed his last F1 race at 55 years, 9 months and 19 days.
Although modern F1 races have higher requirements for the overall quality of the drivers, it is difficult to reach the age of 50, but the existence of Raikkonen and Alonso is enough to show that the veterans can survive in this top racing event. , And Hamilton used his results to prove that age is not an obstacle to the drivers' pursuit of honor!

尽管现代F1赛车对赛车手的整体素质有更高的要求，但要达到50岁就很难了，但是Raikkonen和Alonso的存在足以表明退伍军人能够在这一顶级赛车比赛中生存。 ，汉密尔顿用他的结果证明年龄并不是驾驶员追求荣誉的障碍！ （陶兰加）
