Does anybody know who’s trying to "suffocate" him?

I liked that foto alot also its a little glimpse of somebody fooling around with the "private Kimi" ...by the look Kimi has he isn't minding the "suffocate" but seems to trust the person allot...

Im little bit guessing its actually Riku Kuvaja, his spokesperson and "finnisch manager" or whatever his official titles are. I remember reading a long, long time ago that those two where very good friends already before ... and he just become his spokesperson/finnisch manager later when the different other arrangements Kimi had before with consults and whatever didnt work at all...
Yeah, and Kimi&Kuvaja was seen chatting/fooling around on many of the artic fotos from the pre-start thingy...

here is Kuvajas picture from today. Can it bee him? yes, No?

That's also the reason why I liked that photo, it breaks with the "media"-myth of the ice-inaccessible guy.

About the green livery: isn't it green because they will drive Kawasaki?

Kimi Raikkonen a new team was born in the sauna

Formula-1 series and now rally driver Kimi Raikkonen eksmaailmameister put this year's season-series-related Motocross Championship Ice Racing One team standing in a sauna.

Ice One Racing team boss says Kari Tiainen all happened after last year's rally, Tommi Makinen of Finland, at the MM. "We were there on Sunday after a rally in the sauna, and this topic came up in," recalled Tiainen. "Kim is a hard fan of motocross, and he immediately grabbed the idea of respect."

Sauna parlor was titled as Tiainen is seven times Enduro World Champion, Makinen, however, rejoice in the prize closet, four-Rally Championship title.

This is Kimi's role in the new motocross team

Image

The Ice One Racing team established by Kimi Räikkönen competes in the full Motocross World Championship series of 15 competitions.

– Kimi is extremely interested in everything sometimes even the smaller matters which are related to the operation of the team. He has so much experience in all team-related activities. Of course, his experiences are from much bigger series but however, many matters are very similar in motor racing, team leader Kari Tiainen said to MTV3.

The team established by Räikkönen participates in the Motocross World Championship series. Toni Eriksson rides in the top class, in other words in the MX1 class. Ludde Söderberg is participating in the MX2 class. The team motorcycle is a Japanese Kawasaki.

The budget is a secret

Tiainen does not want to talk about the money but the world championship series is not participated in with small change.

- We have seven people working in our team. One guy is Dutch, the others are Finnish. It has been agreed that we would not talk publicity about the moving sums of money. But we go around the world to all 15 races, the farthest are Southern California and Brazil. It befits a team to have its own trucks and other things. Otherwise we dare not even go to the pits, Tiainen said.

not a surprise at all. In Russia there are a lot of things discussed in sauna and I don't see a reason why it can't be the same in Finland :)

OMG it's more serious that we thought :fear:

Kimi Räikkönen was rushed to hospital

The Formula One World Champion spent the night between Wednesday and Thursday at the Meilahti Hospital in Helsinki.

Kimi Räikkönen was forced to seek hospital treatment due to stomach flu or food poisoning.

– I confirm this information. But we do not want to comment on it any more, said Kimi's PR manager Riku Kuvaja to MTV3.

The illness and a night spent in hospital will not affect Kimi's preparation for Rally Sweden next week.

- Kimi will carry on completely as planned for Rally Sweden. This week's events will not affect those plans in any way, Kuvaja underscores.

PR manager to IS: Räikkönen is OK

According to Kimi Räikkönen's PR manager Riku Kuvaja, the hospital trip was mainly a precautionary measure.

Kimi Räikönen was forced to abandon his plans to attend the motorcycle trade fair held in Helsinki in connection with the planned launch of his motocross team project.

Instead of the exhibition centre Räikkönen ended up in the hospital because of stomach symptoms. Raikkonen was in the Meilahti hospital, located in Helsinki on the night between Wednesday and Thursday.

-Yes, that is the case, Räikkönen's PR manager Riku Kuvaja confirmed to IS on Friday.

Kuvaja did not want to go into the details, but confirmed that the hospital trip will not affect Räikkönen's future plans.

- Kimi is ok. It was not too serious, it was food poisoning or some other stomach illness.

- The hospital was visited just in case.

Räikkönen's World Rally Championship season starts in Sweden next week.

Räikkönen's hospital trip was first reported by MTV3 on its web page.
