Kimi Raikkonen

'Iceman' Kimi Raikkonen on Sunday proved he is not without a sense of humour.

The last time he was at Sepang, in 2009, the Ferrari driver caused raucous laughter in the F1 media centre when the global television feed showed him enjoying a chocolate ice-cream and can of coke.

The rest of the field was damply awaiting the race's re-start on the sodden grid.

There were similar conditions looming in Malaysia on Sunday, and so the Lotus team delivered a present from Raikkonen to each member of the travelling press corps just before the 2012 race.

Along with the chocolate treat, a note from Raikkonen read: "Please enjoy this ice cream".

AFP Asia sports editor Talek Harris said his was delicious.
