Kimi Raikkonen will on Saturday attend his last ‘Stars & Cars’ event in Stuttgart.

The annual event, to be held in 2006 at the Mercedes-Benz Museum, is the German carmaker’s traditional end of year celebration. Raikkonen, 27, is switching from McLaren to Ferrari for 2007.

30,000 spectators attended last year, and in 2006 Pedro de la Rosa, Gary Paffett, Jean Alesi and former double world champion Mika Hakkinen will be there.

“I’m truly looking forward to this one, as it offers me the chance to say goodbye to my thousands of fans and the Mercedes-Benz employees face-to-face,” said Raikkonen.
