    On the other hand, that number looks way too small and I didn't save the program. I'll have to rewrite it and run it later.

    Well, I get the same result so none of the numbers containing the ten digits once each has a double that's a palindrome.

    Kimi Raikkonen has participated in 1/3rd of all F1 races ever (since 1950). Which is quite amazing given that F1 drivers tend to retire much younger than e.g. NASCAR. Of course it helps that there are quite a bit more races per season now than in the early decades, but still. He started 20 years ago and was away for 3 years halfway through. Being an F1 driver for 20 years, he raced three dads and their sons. And to capture a lot of history with just one small line: Raikkonen raced against Alesi in F1 (2001). Alesi plus Raikkonen span F1 from 1989 until today.
