Can't believe I forgot to open a thread for the legend that is Kimi Räikkönen...

Good to have him back in Sauber and it looks like he's going to enjoy it there too.

P6 in free practice today; good stuff.

Great man, even though there's a lot of circle jerking going on over his persona.

Same way there is about Ricciardo. 

Love them both really. Both very entertaining for very different reasons!

Kimi's onboard lap from Q3:

 

Kimi is actually disappointed with P9 in qualifying, saying that the car has more pace and he was just unable to put in a good lap today; he believes that it would have been good enough for another two positions or so. Very promising if true; the car definitely looks good so far and they haven't yet managed to get the best out of it. Looking forward to the race tomorrow!

Not as awkward as McLaren playing a new Sky Sports game where the drivers are blindfolded and have to feel a person to guess who they are. 

Lando Norris touching up Carlos Sainz Snr. waa just awkward AF.

WTF? xD

I'll try and find the video, just so weird. 

If it is as you described, I hope they removed it permanently from everywhere. 

 

Or maybe you just dreamt it ;)

Listened to that podcast interview. Really like him as a guy, not just because of the antics that gain him wider appreciation.

To be fair, Kimi has always struck me as someone who wants to enjoy life as much as racing. Taking everything in his stride, so laid back. 

It'll be a shame when he leaves F1 (again).

Kimi when asked about his leg injury:

"Sport. It is dangerous. I always said it is more dangerous – drinking is probably safer. Usually you don't get injured, you just get a hangover."

:4_joy:

I bet he drives his teams crazy when his hobbies. xD

I also like some more 'extremely' sports outside of work so I understand, but such a high profile person like him, just living his best life, is probably much happier at Alfa where there is less pressure compared to that of Ferrari.

Happy 40th Birthday to the one and only.

Time flies. I vividly remember his debut back in the day. I used to play F1 on Playstation back then, and always played as him as I wanted to be teammates with Nick Heidfeld :D

I also love his radio when he was confused about Bottas being ahead of him, and he seems upset until realizing that Bottas had been leading the whole time.

Oh Kimi...

I want to get drunk with Kimi Räikkönen and Daniel Ricciardo. There couldn't be more of a contrast, but it must be an experience. I'll put that on my bucket list.
