2007 F1 World Champion for Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen and Toro Rosso's 16 years old driver Max Verstappen put on an exciting and spectacular show today, as part of VKV Rotterdam City Racing, the event which saw around half a million fans flock to the Dutch city of Rotterdam, encouraged by the sunshine which chased away yesterday’s clouds.

It was the first time of this 10 years edition that Scuderia Ferrari's driver Kimi Raikkonen drove at Rotterdam. The 2007 F1 world champion drove three laps of the four kilometre circuit which ran between the Willemsburg bridge and the Hofplein roundabout, at the wheel of a 2009 F60, the car in which he won that year’s Belgian Grand Prix. The Finn thrilled the Rotterdam crowd with scorching starts, tyre burn-outs and spectacular acceleration runs.

Max Verstappen also drove a few laps for his home crowd in Rotterdam. He will be racing for Toro Rosso next 2015 F1 season. Hopefully he won't lose his front wing in the first race at Melbourne, like he did during his first laps for public today...

Before and after his runs, Kimi met fans and enthusiasts of all ages, including lots of kids, chatting with them about this season and expectations for what lies ahead, while also signing dozens and dozens of autographs for racing fans from a country which used to host a Formula 1 Grand Prix up to 1985, when the Dutch Grand Prix was held for the last time at the Zandvoort circuit.
