An astounding result in Brazil means Kimi Raikkonen has come from third in the standings to first and wins his first championship in style, ending the chances of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso stealing the trophy away to Woking. For Kimi, this title has come after much hard work and toiling away in unreliable cars. In fact, although previous boss Ron Dennis has congratulated his former driver, it must be a bitter pill to swallow for the man, especially after everything that has happened this year. However, championships are for celebrating, and what better memento to mark Kimi’s first title that a 1:18 replica model of his Ferrari F2007.

Presented on a beautiful base depicting the Australian and Finnish flags as well details of the Ferrari F1 car. Kimi is shown inside the monocoque with both hands raised in celebration, and the model is surely going to become sought after now the Finn as won the title at the other end of his campaign.
