Kimi revealed a strange hobby: "I collect nuts"
Monday, 14.05.2012 at 09.20 (update at 09.37)

Steering wheel man Kimi Räikkönen's most unusual statements was collected to a book.

Evening newspaper journalist Juha Veli Jokinen made a book named EVVVK [Ei Vittu Voisi Vähempää Kiinnostaa = couldn't f**k**g interest less] about F1 driver Kimi Räikkönen's most peculiar quips. In the book, which came on the market recently, can be found downright delicious wits, such as ...

- I collect nuts, Kimi answered the question of hobbies.

- I use just basic deodorant. You can buy it easily from that gas station, said the Finn in 7 päivää journal this year.

- Cranberry vodka I order a lot, because my friends drink it a lot. I often drink vodka and soda, if I drink, Raikkonen pondered in 7 päivää magazine.

- Physically, formula [F1] is completely different class. Rally is nothing compared to that. Rally can be almost driven one-handed, Kimi analyzed in Talouselämä magazine in 2010.

- I was having a s***, he answered when asked what was he doing, when Michael Schumacher was handed the prize before the last race in 2006.

SANTTU ​​SILVENNOINEN



I so hope that the thing with the nuts is a joke! :O

I got the confirmation today on why Raikkonen skipped the Mugello test: He called the team on the first day of testing and said sorry I can't come I hurt my ankle. Seems he did that by playing football with some friends.

Must be some kind of left handed football iceman is telling :lol: I thought Kimi stopped playing football years ago after Indy when he felt pain in his thigh after kicking the ball. In Ferrari they play football keep up their health.
