Grand Prix International #51

As part of the festive season and to celebrate a fantastic year of grand prix racing we are giving YallaF1.com readers a chance to sample Grand Prix International of Edition #51 for FREE for iPad for readers to download now and below to read it with just about every device available including any web browser. This is our last issue of the 2012 calendar year, the 51st publication of this year and the 51st since the first edition which kick-started this project back in January 2012. Common denominator with the first issue and this one: Kimi Raikkonen on the cover. For issue number one we were trumpeting his comeback to Formula, this time around declaring him the Driver of the Year - how time flies. We dedicate the entire edition to The Iceman, his exploits on track and his choicest quotes. When men of few words speak, it is always worth listening and Kimi does not disappoint. We also have a tribute to the ten different F1 cars he drove during his ten seasons as an F1 driver including a special non-F1 ride which is ultra-cool.
