Kimi Räikkönen stole the show at the 2018 FIA Prize Giving Gala in Russia Friday night.

The Finnish driver, who is departing from Scuderia Ferrari this year to join Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, was at the Awards night to claim his third place trophy in the drivers’ championship from this years’ F1 season.

Whilst the Gala gets to see all the champions from all FIA series gather together to collect their winnings , it was the appearance of Räikkönen over the course of the night that attracted the attention of fans through social media.

Images and video footage of Räikkönen emerge of the Finn having a good time and was on top form over the course of the night.

Räikkönen is well loved by fans for his hilarious behavior over Grands Prix weekends, giving short answers to media questions and known for his love of partying. The Finn famously ate an ice cream during a red flag at the 2009 Malaysia Grand Prix and the infamous ‘leave me alone, I know what I’m doing’ radio message whilst on his way to victory at the 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

At the FIA Gala in Saint Petersberg, Räikkönen was in full party mode and the fans online were loving it:
