Raikkonen gifts ice cream to F1 media in Malaysia

Mar.26 (GMM) ‘Iceman’ Kimi Raikkonen on Sunday proved he is not without a sense of humour.

The last time he was at Sepang, in 2009, then a Ferrari driver, he caused raucous laughter in the F1 media centre when the global television feed showed him enjoying a chocolate ice-cream and can of Coke.

The rest of the field was damply awaiting the race’s re-start on the sodden grid. There were similar conditions looming in Malaysia on Sunday, so the Lotus team delivered a present from Raikkonen to each member of the travelling press corps just before the 2012 race.

Along with the chocolate treat, a note from Raikkonen read: “Please enjoy this ice cream”. AFP Asia sports editor Talek Harris said his was delicious.
