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.

Remember to look out for the best in tomorrow’s Comment of the Day in the daily round-up.

    Who are all these pay drivers? I only know about 10 people. And this time don’t talk to me in the middle of a corner, otherwise I’ll need a #### (as I did in Brazil 2006) … and LOTS of vodka.

    To see if Kimi was truly motivated about his F1 return, Lotus hooked him up to Jeremy Kyle’s lie dector.

    “….. well its been life changing experience, something i feel needed to do. Its been nice to have a break away from everyday life, but things i guess are going to be a little different now. Yes i am dissapointed being evicted from big brother house the week before the final, but at least now i can take a **** in private.”

    Kimi was rigged up to a heart monitor just to check he was still alive during the interview due to his complete lack of facial expressions and his stern silence.

    Turns out he just doesn’t like being interviewed…

    Lotus mechanic offers Kimi novelty sized piece of gum, Kimi looks unimpressed.

    One of Raikkonen’s marionette strings snaps rendering his face motionless……

    No one notices.

    Kimi to interviewer: “Did he just shake his tictacs at me?”

    Paul Mckenna Hypnotizes Raikkonen telling him “from the moment you open your eyes you’ll have a new found love for media duties and commercial responsibilities. O.K…. eyes open wide awake”

    Kimi forgets how to sit in a chair

  13. mike-e (@mike-e) said on 28th January 2012, 21:55

    Lotus is doing its best to stay within the RRA by not buying a chair for Kimi’s P.A.

    “… and then one day, I went past a granny, who was sitting like this while eating an ice-cream, and I remembered F1, and decided to come back.”

    “Kimi, why the long face?”

    “Because….Racecar”

    “….so John, I’m very glad to begin my second generation career with Lotus in it’s iconic colour scheme – and to be a team Player with the guys, for me, will be really Special. Ah, thankyou no, I only smoke at night….”
