to be honest i got mad when during the race the greek commentator did a nasty drinking joke about Kimi ( i'm sure i'll get him somewhere in the city, wont i? ) but i want Kimi to be happy and have fun

Nico celebrated at the Amber Lounge, where I joined his gang at around 4am this morning just in time to catch last orders. Earlier I was walking through the tunnel towards the Torch yacht party, which has been my home for much of the weekend, when I saw a 40-strong gang in baggy clothes walking towards me. Judging by their look and the fact none of them were walking in a straight line, I guessed they might be Finnish. As they came closer sure enough, like the pied piper of Helsinki, there was Kimi Raikkonen, laughing away, and he gave me a high five as he passed. Good to see him chipper, because when he said Sergio Perez should be “punched in the face” earlier, for ruining his race, I was a little concerned Kimi might be in poor spirits. Of course not. Give Kimi a shot and everything is fine again. ... f-canapes/

i guess he was having fun with his buddies..found this on twitter

OMG! <img src=" title="ha" /> <img src=" title="ha" />

Kimi is a hoot! Atleast he was having fun.

Does F1 Need More Raikkonens?
Date: 30th May 2013 at 12:15 pm

The current era of F1 drivers are apparently all signed up to the demands of sponsors and publicity, however one man feels that this isn’t for him, Kimi Raikkonen. The 2007 World Champion made his return to the series last year in the Lotus Renault, and has since become an icon for fans to love, on and off the track.

It is common knowledge that the ‘Iceman’ is a typical Finn, very reserved and quiet, however when out on track, Raikkonen transforms into one of the fastest drivers on the planet. The Lotus racer so far is on a run of 23 continuous top ten finishes, two of them being victories, as well as being in the championship hunt. And yet he doesn’t seem to bat an eyelid at it.

Raikkonen appears to a lone ranger or an outlaw of the F1 paddock. Whilst the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel fulfil their contractual agreements on race weekends, Raikkonen chooses not to, and often does his own thing. Even when he does attend press conferences, the often scripted answers from drivers is thrown out the window when Kimi opens his mouth.

When asked about passing back markers recently, Kimi replied with “If they are being lapped they shouldn’t be racing”. Fast-forward to Monaco this past weekend and his claim that Sergio Perez should be punched in the face for his driving around the streets of Principality. Although it is a bold thing to say, and somewhat out of line, it does inject a breath of fresh air into the sport which is being dominated by tyres at the moment. That fresh air being someone who is bold enough to be different and stand out from the crowd, whilst saying what he wants. Even though Renault have had the past incident with Robert Kubica crashing a Rally car, Raikkonen still chooses to race bikes and cars without concern that he will get injured purely because he loves motorsport.

Looking back to years gone by there is only perhaps one notable driver that shares that cut throat approach to everything around the racing, the late and great Ayrton Senna. The Brazilian is labelled as the greatest driver to ever race in F1 and was well known for the way he went about press conferences. If asked a question he didn’t like, then Senna would simply give a bland answer. He too would also race anything with an engine, especially when in those days it was nowhere near as safe as today.

It is these characters that are missed in the world of F1. Looking at other racing series you can see a wide variety of characters from Valentino Rossi to Jason Plato. All of whom get the job done on track, but are very different in the garages.

Kimi Raikkonen is perhaps a one off in a golden era of F1, however more of these characters are needed I feel in the coming years to ensure that the sport isn’t about ticking over the money and sponsors. ... FanCast%29

Kimi’s first race

Last time we spoke about Kimi Raikkonen, we had a great chat with his race engineer during his first Formula 1 season with Sauber, Jacky Eeckelaert. This time, we wanted to know more about how things progressed from the first test through to his first race. So we knocked on Jacky’s door again.

“After the first test with Kimi, we had another test,” explains Jacky. “At that time, Red Bull was sponsor to Sauber and Dietrich Mateschitz pushed the team to sign Enrique Bernoldi. Bernoldi was a very fast driver but I saw in Kimi not only speed but also determination. I thought Kimi would be a better addition that Bernoldi. So we did another test at Mugello with Kimi and Bernoldi. Although there were similar in lap times, I asked from them to do some stints of 10 timed laps and you could there some difference already. Enrique started to be inconsistent after some laps while with Kimi, it was not the case. He was running like a clock. After that it was clear which driver to pick up.”

After the team decided to pick up Kimi, the plan was to get him in the car for plenty of mileage.

“In order to win in F1, it’s not about driving for 20 or 30 mins,” explains Eeckelaert. “It’s not like karting or Formula Renault, an F1 race last an hour-and-a-half at least. At that time, we had refueling so the idea was to have him prepared to do 20 or so laps until the pitstop. That’s where we had to focus on during the winter. To keep working on this 20 laps idea.”

So during the winter, Kimi undertook an intensive training programme in order to reach the fitness level of an F1 driver. During that period, he once again showed his determination. The team gave him a programme and in the evaluation it was obvious that he had made at least the double that was required from him.

During testing in January, Kimi impressed the team once again, as Jacky explains.

“The testing days were completely at 5 o’clock in the afternoon and there were times when we completed the schedule 45 mins earlier than that,” he says. “The vast majority of the drivers returned to the motorhomes doing other activities, but it wasn’t the same with Kimi. He came and asked ‘can I do another long run?’ Physically, he became strong in a very small time. He learned a lot of things and all he was interested in winning.”

Kimi Raikkonen’s first F1 race was the 2001 Australian GP in Melbourne. In his first qualifying session he managed to take 13th spot, with his teammate Nick Heidfeld starting only three places further up. It was a good start.

The pitlane was about to open for the race and teams had 15 mins to send the cars out to take their positions to the grid. Barely 5 mins before this, the team looked for Kimi who wasn’t to be found in the garage.

“It was 5 mins to go until the pitlane went green and Kimi wasn’t in the garage,” says Eeckelaert. “He was nowhere to be found! So we went looking for him in the motorhome and we found him sleeping. That was his way of relaxing, even in his first even F1 race! ‘What? Is it now already? I’m coming, I’m coming’, I remember were his words. He had everything completely under control.”

“Before the race, I advised him to keep pushing up to the last lap. Even if you are out of the points, it’s very important to keep pushing. Because after the race we take the car apart and we are doing the checks, so that we know what part has problems or which needs a redesign. We have to keep the car under constant pressure to ensure all goes smooth for the next race. Because if it breaks with couple of laps left, then parts have to be redesigned”

In his first race, Kimi finished seventh, behind Heinz-Harald Frentzen, but a 25-second penalty was applied to Olivier Panis and Jos Verstappen for overtaking under the yellow flag. Panis finished ahead, in fourth place, so the Finn was promoted to sixth place. He had become one of the few drivers to score a point on his grand prix debut.

“All this because he pushed up to the last lap and he close enough to get ahead after the penalty was applied.

“I asked him after the race ‘what do you think? Your first ever GP and in the points?’, and he looked to me without any expression in his face and replied ‘another 5 to beat’”, concludes Jacky.

‘What? Is it now already? I’m coming, I’m coming’ :laugh

@Boudica: whats a hoot? <img src=" title="dunno" />


a. The characteristic cry of an owl.
b. A sound suggesting the cry of an owl, especially the sound of a horn.

Something to <img src=" title="drool" /> for the boys: Jenny was with friends on the ICEMAN (the boat)..... <img src=y" title="wink" />

#838 RE: Iceman by icemaid 03.06.2013 06:05

Huh I thought Jenni is no longer with Kimi.
What is she (& her friends) doing in his boat? Or is this an old photo?
Btw which one is Jenni?

#839 RE: Iceman by Jalumi 03.06.2013 06:43


Maybe they share the boat <img src=" title="dunno" />
I think she is partying <img src=h" title="hih" /> She´s the one with the hat in the middle of the first picture.

#840 RE: Iceman by Sonny 03.06.2013 07:18

Is this picture recent? <img src=" title="blink" />

I can't believe Kimi would allow her and her friends to party on his boat if the divorce rumors are true... <img src=" title="hmm" />
