In a recent interview in ‘F1 Racing’, made with questions sent by readers, Kimi Raikkonen reveals some of his profiles and personal tastes.
One of the most curious issues is that of your favorite drinks, a point that is always ‘legendary’ throughout his career. “Water, if I have to keep some,” he replies. “Beer is another story and milk, or other things,” says the Ferrari driver inexpressively.
When he is reminded of his predilection for Hartwall’s, a long drink consisting of gin and grapefruit soda, very classic in Finland, Raikkonen acknowledges that “it’s fine, but I’ll take the one I drink the most, which is water, sometimes with and others without gas “, says the champion in 2007.
In sports, he recognizes that he is not interested in participating in the Indy 500. “It’s a nice race and years ago, I probably could have done it, but now I do not,” he says.
He acknowledges that he could return to the World Rally Championship “in some dates, for fun” and gives his opinion when comparing the F1 and the WRC. “They are two completely different categories, in a purely physical sense, I am inclined to say that F1 is more stressful, but on the other hand, the rally is difficult due to the number of hours you drive, you do a full week of recognition and you can pass. more than 12 hours a day in a car with the notes, “he says.
Getting enough sleep is usually one of the problems in the WRC. “Spending so much time in the car is quite exhausting, and thinking and taking notes is much more tiring than I would have expected, and the stretches can be early in the morning or late at night. you can in the assists, but that in the Rallies is sometimes very complicated, “he recalls.
The Rallycross World Championship is one of the specialties that can attract you in the future. “Yes, I have not had time to drive the car yet, but it has been offered to me at times, it seems fun, they are similar to Rally, but they have more power and I think it would be nice to try one at least,” Kimi acknowledges. .
