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.

    Interviewer: The most exciting moment in F1?
    Kimi: I think it’s the race start.
    Interviewer: The most boring?
    Kimi: Now.

    Interviewer “Kimi arent you supposed to be doing sponsorship work right now.”

    Kimi was easily confused with the fact that the R30 wasn’t in its usual colours.

    “Kimi, that’s it! Have you enjoyed this interview?”
    “…Yes”
    “Great, because we’ll have one each week”

  6. Finally we’ve got him to sit. Now if we can only get him to speak…

    “After citing the media as one reason for leaving F1 last time, Kimi settles into the seat of his new car.”

    “The reactive suspension had so much of a strong effect on the body work of the E20.”

  8. So did you watch much of the 2011 season to prepare yourself for this season?

    yes, the last 30mins of brazil….. Webber had a cracking season didnt he?

  9. Interviewer: So, Kimi, you obviously couldn’t keep away from F1 after 2 years away, are you pleased to be back?
    Kimi: Errr, not really, errr, but, errr, think that, errr, I need an ice bath, errr, that’s why, errr, they call me the Iceman, errr

    “I must say I expected Lotus to have a better rest area than this, even in the old day we at least had a caravan to sit in”.

    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…
