Raikkonen gifts ice-cream to press corps

‘Iceman’ Kimi Raikkonen on Sunday proved he is not without a sense of humour.

2012-03-24 - Lotus F1 Team - Malaysian Grand Prix - Kimi Raikkonen 032012-03-24 - Lotus F1 Team - Malaysian Grand Prix - Kimi Raikkonen 04The last time he was at Sepang, in 2009, the Ferrari driver 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, and 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.
