I don't know if you guys have already posted here, if so, sorry!!! :confused:

Thanks!!! :thumbsup:

Hi Ludy :hug:

It's a compilation of the stories written about Kimi in the papers. It's really funny :lol:

I can translate it little by little but here is the first part:

The F1-world was staring at Räikkönen in Melbourne 2001. Sauber's race engineer Jacky Eeckelaert would also have wanted to stare at Kimi before the race but he couldn't find him anywhere. Did he chicken?
- Kimi was sleeping in some truck. They had to go and wake him up, Kalle Jokinen, Räikkönen's ex-mechanic tells.

In his opening race Kimi drove sensationally to points and came in 6th - only because he was driving on the limit until the end. Räikkönen always follows his father's instructions 'always drive one million on the limit'.

Once Kimi drove out from the track in Bemböle.
- He bounced from the rocks with his foot on the pedal and forced the car back on the track. The chains were gone, the wheel was broken and there was an awful lot of damage in the car. I started to scold him telling him that these are expensive equipment, Matti remembers.

Kimi turned around and looked at his father who he has always called by his name.
- Masa hey, you have told yourself that we drive for as long as the wheels are turning, Kimi gave back to him.

- yes yes, but I meant racing conditions.

The deer gets scared in 2004

After Kimi gets out of his racing outfit it's like he is pulled into a wrong world, he is like a fragile deer in front of the headlights. After Kimi gets out of the car he loses his driving line. He is embarrassed in crowds and he can't analyse his driving in an interesting way. He is like Mozart from the motorsport who can play from his backbone without knowing the notes and without having the energy to explain his works to all the Salieres. Without his instrument he gets bored, changes into a restless man whose hands are feverishly looking for a vehicle to grab.

- Driving is like a drug for Kimi. He needs it. During karting-times he always started to fool around and wrestle during the days off the track. Or then he just slept through the day, Jokinen remembers.

have two questions:
First: in the Rally NZ after stage 8 Is there service park Before the 9 special stage
Second: for example, I participated in the rally NZ and was ranked 10 and Sordo 11 and I'm not registered in the tournament are you win Sordo 1 point in the drivers championship or me ganye the point

On the F1-paddock Räikkönen was soon known as if not as a simple then at least as a boring guy who has problems putting two words together.
- Everything was new to him. How could he have analysed Canada's track if he never even been to Canada? He just anwsers honestly, Matti says.

- Kimi isn't a high society man. The principal is that he drives the races flat out so that he doesn't have to explain afterwards, Toni Vilander tells.

Räikkönen has slowly opened up but the joking boy performs to only a few and chosen ones. In January 2004 he was in a motorsledge race in Kaana with his friends. Everything was fine until people recognised the McLaren-star in the sausage-tent's corner. He practically froze of the well-meaning attention he got from his own people - from people in motorsport.

No, they don't have service before the 9th SS.

If you aren't registered in the tournament and beat Sordo then I don't think you get the point intended for him. I think they give the points according to the serie you are driving in. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong :blush:

Oi, thanks Anelise, wonderful and funny pictures from Kimi's wedding :hug:

The spectators saw a glimpse of Jenni just as the car was leaving (they had mega-security):
Image

The family across the wedding-place was renovating their roof and the boys in the family decided to remember the wedding couple with a text they made out of tiles. Kimi and Jenni sent them a bottle of the wedding-wine to thank them.

It says: Good luck Kimi - Jenni

The Wedding-car. A Maybach limousine is a real luxury car: handmade and costs about one million euros.

Image

Mika and Erja Häkkinen made the most flashing entrance with Harley-Davidson.

Image

Kimi and Jenni made their everything so that outsiders wouldn't see a glimpse of the wedding.

Here it is: the wedding place just after the ceremony! The guests are walking to Vanajanlinna.

Image

The security guards used a boat when driving away outsiders who tried to come too close.
