Raikkonen to start holidays with snowmobile race 29 November, 2012 Nov.29 (GMM) Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen will kick off his winter break with some snowmobile racing. Just after signing to return to F1 in 2012 with Lotus, the 2007 world champion hurt his wrist during a snowmobile racing crash in Austria. Now, APA news agency reports that the 33-year-old Finn intends to race a 70 horse power snowmobile again, in Saalbach on 8 December. At the 2012 season finale in Brazil last weekend, Raikkonen made headlines for arriving at Interlagos late following a holiday in Los Angeles. He then missed a corner during the race and, upon driving into the support-race pitlane, had to do a u-turn when he found a gate blocking his path. “I did the same thing in 2001, and the gate was open that year,” said Raikkonen. “Somebody closed it this time. Next year I’ll make sure it’s open again.” Subbed by AJN.

When will they swap Webber for him? As a Ferrari fan I would like to see Kimi take the title away from Monty just to prover him wrong (I’d prefer he do it in the Lotus because I hate those canjerks) Fuzzy Kimi would not get out of bed for a 70 Hp snow mobile. (neither would I) 170 or 270 maybe?
