The McLaren star received his trophy at a ceremony in London on Sunday from Britain's 1992 champion Nigel Mansell.
"I know what it's like to be a bridesmaid," said Mansell, who finished runner-up three times before eventually taking the title with Williams.
"I think it is just a question of time - Kimi is a future world champion."
The 26-year-old Finn was also runner-up to Ferrari's Michael Schumacher in 2003.
