just noticed this on Wikipedia, details regarding Raikkonens karting career pre F1:

"
Räikkönen's next Monaco race was also memorable; he was thrown on the wrong side of the safety fence in a first lap collision but continued driving until running out of road. Undeterred, he lifted his kart back onto the track and continued to race. His mechanic thought Räikkönen had retired, but he eventually caught up with the other competitors and finished third
"

Now we know where Brazil 2012 came from! :D And some people wonder why I like him so much more than your run of the mill champion.

I read about that story already. Here is nice video of his rookie season which I have not seen before.

During those times driver were hand picked. I do not think there was GP2 or F2 which is pretty good preparation like how Hamilton was groomed and ready for F1 from day1. Max as well to name a few.

There was F3000 which was basically the same.
