Kimi Raikkonen is not in a common type within the world of Formula 1 . And once again he has shown it again in an interview with Motorsport.com . In it, he has reviewed his biography The unknown Kimi Raikkonen , in which several episodes of the extra-sport life of the current Alfa Romeo rider are collected. Among them, the 16 consecutive days that he spent drinking between the GP of Bahrain and Barcelona in 2013 stand out .
"I could not remember it. Half of the things people had to tell me. We had just passed through Europe and had a little fun. It was not the first time, and it was normal for us, " said the Finn. " What's wrong? There's nothing wrong with it . That was quite normal, and it happened all the time. It wasn't the only time I did something like that. I had fun, " adds the world champion in 2007.
Raikkonen also speaks without complexes about his alleged addiction to tobacco . "I can't even remember the last time I smoked. I think the book also tells me that I smoked and then quit smoking. But I guess I didn't smoke at meetings , but at the motorhome , on the terrace, with my boss ..." says the pilot, who also says he had no need to censor anything to the author of his biography.
In turn, the Scandinavian also confesses that his life has changed since the birth of his children . "Now there are other priorities. At that time I had my job, but on the other hand ... If I wanted to fly somewhere, I was going. I didn't have to ask anyone. I was old enough to do what I wanted." "When you have a family, that changes. I want to be with my children. I enjoy the time I spend with my family. Sometimes I still go out with my wife. But that is something completely different. We all grow old, right? And after 16 days I don't drink as well as I used to drink, "says Iceman ironically.
