'F1's a job, not my life' - Kimi

2012-04-30 13:09

JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE: F1 would be more enjoyabe for Kimi Raikkonen if he could get rid of the politics.

Kimi Raikkonen insists he is "not interested" in Formula 1, apart from the cars, speed and winning races.

Asked by the Bild am Sonntag newspaper if he might remove his sunglasses for an interview, the 2007 world champion Raikkonen replied simply: "No."

At the end of his fourth race since returning to F1 from rallying, Raikkonen was second and back on the podium in Bahrain.


Raikkonen said: "It's not going too bad. I like what I'm doing, that's enough. I don't care if someone says whether I'm doing it well or not.

"Still, it's disappointing when you're only second. Who knows what's going to happen at the next race."

Just after leaving F1 at the end of 2009, Raikkonen said he disliked everything about the sport, except the cars.

Raikkonen said: "No. I'm only here for racing. All the other bulls**t I can do without. If you took away the cars from F1, I would not be there.

"F1 plays no role in my personal life. I have a real life! I think for many people, their life is F1.  For me it's not."

So, thank you for that positive interview, Kimi...
