He failed to score again at the Italian Grand Prix after losing his front wing at the start. He managed to make his way up the order, but was unable to pass Jenson Button for a point scoring position. On the week following the race, it was announced that Räikkönen would not continue with Lotus for the 2014 season, and instead join Fernando Alonso at Ferrari. Before the following Singapore Grand Prix, it was revealed that Räikkönen had not been paid salary by Lotus for the whole season, meaning there were several million euros of outstanding fees. Räikkönen publicly cited this as the reason for leaving Lotus for Ferrari.
Real Estate: Unsurprisingly for someone with a staggering net worth, Kimi Räikkönen has significant real estate holdings. He was quite active in 2008; first selling his home in Finland for 14.5 million Euros. The home is reportedly situated in the capital of Helsinki, and it features eight rooms. He then purchased a luxurious beachfront property in the picturesque city of Phuket, Thailand. He paid $1.5 million for the residence and announced that he planned to use it as a vacation getaway for not only himself but also his friends and family.
In 2009, Kimi acquired a "dream home" in Baar, Switzerland for $24 million. The expansive villa is situated a short drive from Zurich and was dubbed "Butterfly" by Räikkönen after the purchase was complete. The home features 3,000 square feet of living space, outdoor pools, and of course a large underground garage for the avid motorist. In 2014, it was reported that Kimi had purchased another home in Helsinki for 3 million Euros. Raikonnen is also rumored to own additional properties in Dubai, Porkkola, and Tahko.
