Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen filled in the time between the recent Malaysian Grand Prix and round three in China this weekend with a spot of motocross.
Founded alongside his rallying team during his two-year Formula 1 sabbatical, Raikkonen’s IceOne squad also includes a motocross arm.
So the Finn pulled on his MX gear and goggles last week – during the three-week break between Malaysia and China – and headed to Belgium, according to the Finnish broadcaster MTV3.
There, the 2007 world champion participated in the gravel practice session, with images depicting him in full airborne tilt.
Motocross riding would ordinarily be deemed too dangerous for Formula 1 teams to allow, but Lotus team boss Eric Boullier admitted last week that, “One of our drivers is famous for doing pretty much what he wants”. (GMM)
