The Iceman is BACK !
« on: November 29, 2011, 02:05:02 PM »
I am freakin excited by this news! :Dancing_banana:
My fav living F1 driver is gonna be back racing.
Lucky for a somewhat competitive car.

I am sooo going for Sepang next year.

6 world champions on the grid for 2012 woot! :Jumping:

This news is so epic to me that it deserves a thread on its own :Laughing_on_floor:

No worries Scott.
Some short info on his F1 career.
http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/272292/kimi-raikkonen-the-f1-career-so-far/

Why do i like him?
To me he is the most naturally fast driver on the grid. Not most well rounded, that would be Alonso.

He is also a no BS fella, he goes in the car drives the heck out of it and done. If you look at the current F1 circuits, a lot of the lap record is set by him.

But he is by no means a PR guy, his interviews are as interesting as a rock on the side of the road, sounds and talks like a robot.
Below is a vid of his latest interview.

He does have a smashing wife though :P


And to keep this somewhat watch related

Yes, the Iceman is my knid of F1 driver.
We saw the return of "shoe-maker", now Kimi is making a comeback into F1 from rallying.
Next season is going to be pretty exciting.
