    See the following from Jalopnik

    “I don’t understand how this car can be so hot. My ass is even burning in here!”

    Kimi decided not to wear heat shields because heat had not been an issue in the truck he raced the week beforehand. It appears it certainly became one.

    “Why you shouting on the fucking radio?”

    Water bottle confusion also plagued Raikkonen throughout the race. After a crew member gave Kimi an empty bottle, the crew chief started yelling. Kimi quickly told them to take it off the air.

    “I am out of the drink again. It’s so small. Mark has to make sure it’s completely full, because it is too small.”

    As the liquid related chaos continues, it becomes obvious the Iceman just can’t get enough to drink.

    “We’re so fucking shit, it’s unbelievable.”

    Regardless of his 27th place finish and uncertain racing future it became clear pretty quickly that Kimi certainly sounds like a NASCAR driver.

    “Did you see how fucking bad it is? I cannot even turn the car into the corner. ..And remember, I need water.”

    As he was about to get lapped, Raikkonen stuck with his pre-existing strategy of asking for more water and complaining about the car.

    “I need my drinking water. Hey!! Give me my drinking water!!!”

    Jeff Gluck thinks Kimi might have said “bottle” instead of “water” as he was coming into the pit. We hope his second interpretation was correct because “Give me my drinking bottle” could quickly become the official catchphrase of NASCAR fans worldwide.

    “You just have to do what you have to do to get fast laps.”

    In response to Kimi’s spotter pointing out he is on old tires and his car is handling accordingly. We aren’t really sure what it means either.

    “The car is just so fucking bad (mumble mumble).”

    Who knows what the mumbles were exactly, but a cry for more drink wouldn’t be a bad guess.

    “The car is shit because I cannot get it turned! It is so frustrating! I cannot get the fucking car turned!”

    This one does a nice job explaining itself.

    “Don’t talk about other things on the radio”

    Kimi quickly made it clear after his spotter began discussing an incident on track he didn’t want to hear about it. We imagine this was well received in the pits where the crew had been listening to Raikkonen’s burning feet complaints and demands for more water the whole race.

    LOL. Looks like Kimi isn’t having a ball of a time in NASCAR either. He should have stuck to F1. I’m pretty sure he would get his water in F1.
