Kimi Raikkonen, Lotus, Valencia, 2012

Kimi Raikkonen made his long-awaited return to F1 this week with a two-day test for Lotus in Valencia.

But as much as he might relish being back in F1 machinery, Raikkonen has never had much time for the media demands that go hand-in-hand with being a professional racing driver.

What might he have had to say to the press on his return to F1 this year? It’s over to you to supply the caption.

    Kimi: Yes, I will be wearing a gorilla costume driving the lotus this year.

  2. Cost-cutting taken to a new level at Lotus with Raikkonen’s latest seat fitting.

    “Why are you wearing a cap? – You know that they call me the Iceman, right?”

    Kimi had been out of F1 for a while, but no-one had the heart to remind him that this wasn’t his seat-fitting

    “I’m not sure what happened in qualifying. I was asleep.”

    You really have nothing better to do, do you?

    Interviewer:

    ‘So Kimi, after two years away from Formula 1, you are back in Formula 1! I mean you were a wonderful driver for McLaren and Ferrari in your first stint and became World Champion, but you didn’t seem to be in love with the sport anymore, and ultimately that seemed the case when you left for pastures new and tried you’re hand at rallying, not to mention the foray into Nascar! What I want to know is, why after these two years have you decided to come back to what many say a sport you should never have left in the first place? Why have you left Rally behind as quickly as you joined it? Why have you joined Lotus?’

    Kimi: ‘Why not?’

    Kimi will you be the Flying Finn this year.
    No I will be the Trying Finn.

    Lotus change their press conference format as part of Kimi deal!

    Interviewer: “So Kimi, how many airmiles have you gathered so far being back in Formula 1?”

    Kimi: “…that’s not funny!”

    Kimi:”What do you mean they’ve run out of ice creams?!”

  14. The Lotus PR man is down on one knee and looks as if he’s asking Kimi to marry him. Not sure if Raikkonen is that committed to Lotus ;)

    A member of the Lotus team demonstrates their new “Stealth Shave” technique.
