Germany didn’t let Kimi get away… without a fall
We’ve already seen the pictures and had a good laugh in the community about Kimi’s latest blunder, not far off-track either. It seems Kimi’s bad luck in Germany still chased him, despite being promoted to third place. As ever with the internet, there was a surge of animated photoshopped jokes which you can see below. This just has to go into the KRS Archive so here’s a little article about the Flying Finn.
Kimi Raikkonen finished Sunday’s German grand prix in fourth place, and was later promoted to third, but in the immediate aftermath of the Hockenheim result, the Finn would enjoy a dose of good luck – and then a reminder of harsh reality.
When his friend Sebastian Vettel was penalised post-race for the illegal pass on Jenson Button, Finn Raikkonen inherited third position.
But, according to Bild newspaper, he then crashed.
The newspaper has published a photograph of the 2007 world champion tripping whilst jumping a fence to the paddock carpark, and landing awkwardly on a car.
“Kimi was rushing,” said an observer. “As he took a shortcut to the carpark, his right foot got caught on the fence and he fell onto a car. He let out an expletive, and quickly got up and going again.”
