Raikkonen crashes out of tarmac rally
Kimi Raikkonen at the weekend crashed out of his latest foray into the world of professional rallying.
The Ferrari driver, having entered two rounds of the Finnish rally championship in the winter, entered the same Tommi Makinen-prepared Fiat Abarthe Grande Punto into the Rally della Marca.
But on the third stage of the event in northern Italy's Treviso region, while running eighth in his category, Raikkonen crashed and struck a rock verge, terminally damaging the right rear corner of his white car.
Before the event, the Finn thanked Ferrari for giving him permission to compete.
"I really enjoy myself (rallying) and it will be my first experience on tarmac after some tests on snow last winter," Raikkonen had said. "As I'm coming from the race track it will be interesting to see what I will be able to do behind the wheel on the roads."
i think they din have coke and Magnums at the rally for Raikkonen.
IIRC, K. Raikkonen likes rallying.
As Steve Slater correctly stated, Kimi is the FASTEST natural driver on the grid right now, provided you put him in a competitive car
used to hate him when he was with McLiaren coz he is like challenging Ferrari for race wins. but now that he is with Ferrari... support lah!
i'm just praying that Pork Slice do not come over to Ferrari. don't want an ungrateful brat driving for the Prancing Horse.
Mythbusters - the bigger the explosion, the better it is.
