Then there’s his reported three homes in his homeland of Finland, as well properties in Dubai and Thailand.

But it’s his mansion near Zurich that Kimi spends the majority of time with his stunning wife, Minttu, and children Robin and Rianna.

BEST BAAR NONE

Kimi bought the dream house for a mega $20.5million in 2009.

Named Butterfly – although it’s unclear why – it can be found in Baar, a small village near Zurich.

Kimi explained: “We searched for about five years for a property where we could build our own house.

“Then we found Villa Butterfly which was ready for move-in and had a name too.”

Built over 3,000 square-feet, the vast living space offers the motorsport legend and his family plenty of space.

There are two pools, one indoor, one outdoor, for the Raikkonens to enjoy.

Lush gardens overlook an incredible backdrop of the Zug lake with the Alps right behind it.

Astonishingly, the building also has a lift and the windows are bulletproof glass.

And there’s a fully-equipped gym to help Kimi stay in shape.

MASSIVE GARAGE

As is a theme with racing car drivers, they like to take their work home with them.

Raikkonen is no different, which explains why his massive garage at Villa Butterfly can hold up to 10 cars.

Although he is said to own a $360,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge and a $3.6million Ferrari Enzo, it’s motorcycles that hold the Finnish legend’s attention.
