Kimi Raikkonen has been the talk of the town ever since he clinched that elusive race win in Austin, beginning his last phase in that Ferrari in emphatic fashion.
Post the win, Raikkonen was obviously in high spirits and provided fans with a lot of memories, coming up with interesting statements for everyone to enjoy.
He had an interesting conversation with his team on the radio post the race, responding to all the praise with ‘F**king finally’.

In his post race interview with a journalist , he was asked if the race winning champagne tasted a little sweeter, to which he said that unfortunately the taste was same as when he comes 2nd or 3rd.

Kimi was pretty nonchalant about his answer and laughed off his answer too.
In the post race press conference, Raikkonen had his best possible moment with Hamilton, ending up inviting him to his 40th birthday bash.
Hamilton was speaking to the media about how Kimi inspired him to get better and better everyday, as the Finn, who is currently 39 is still able to grind out race wins at the highest level.
While complimenting Kimi, Lewis asked for his age and Kimi replied saying he was 39. Hamilton asked if he could get an invite for the 40th, with Kimi giving him an affirmative.
The duo shared a nice laugh(along with Max Verstappen), and it certainly was one of the nicest moments from the weekend.
