• Raikkonen will probably not invite F1 drivers to his farewell party

• 2020 could be Raikkonen's last in F1

• Raikkonen speaks on F1 cars' engines

In a recent interview, everyone's' favourite straight-talking Finn Kimi Raikkonen revealed that there won't be any Formula 1 drivers at his retirement party.

As to who in the paddock can count themselves on that list, he isn't saying.

This year's championship could be Raikkonen's last in F1 with the Alfa Romeo driver conceding that if he is no longer enjoying the racing, he'll walk away.

There won't, however, be many F1 drivers at that farewell party.In a wide-ranging interview with Infobae, the slightly reformed party animal was asked which drivers he would invite to a party.

He replied: "I don't think I'd invite many. I would probably only invite my friends."

Straight talk

If there is one thing we all love about the Finn it is his straight talking. If he doesn't like it, he lets you know. Seems he wasn't very impressed with his third place at the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix, a race in which he admitted he expected to do better. His face on the podium said it all.

When asked why he looks so serious on the podium, Raikkonen said: "It's hard to say, it's just me and I react as I feel at the time. There's no point in pretending or being fake."

And on that note Raikkonen was asked about his favourite engine, the V10, V8 or V6. In Kimi fashion, he responded: "I don't care. Each engine formula has its own characteristics and it's up to the drivers to make the most of it."
