Raikkonen gives Lotus radio message shirts

By on Friday, November 9, 2012

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix victor Kimi Raikkonen has given his entire Lotus team T-shirts, featuring his famous radio message, according to BBC Sport.

Over 500 T-Shirts, carrying the message 'leave me alone, I know what I'm doing' arrived at the Lotus factory in Enstone on Friday morning.

To follow the team's colour scheme, the T-Shirts were in black and gold.

Raikkonen was leading the race when Lotus race engineer Simon Rennie informed the Finn of his gap back to second placed Fernando Alonso, leading to Raikkonen's now famous radio message.

Later on in the race, Raikkonen was reminded to warm up his tyres behind the Safety Car and replied "Yes, yes, yes, yes. I'm doing it all the time. You don't have to remind me every second".
