In F1 Racing magazine’s September 2014 issue is a feature on Kimi Raikkonen and John Surtees appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in late June this year. It was a historic meeting of two Ferrari legends and their championship winning masterpieces. In this interview, Kimi talks about meeting Surtees, the cars, being at Goodwood for the first time and his current season. I’ve taken pictures of the article, enjoy :)
When Kimi Met John
The two official Scuderia Ferrari drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso are two minds who are not always in opposition, as we found when we asked them about their likes and dislikes.
For the duration of a short double interview, the technical side and results give way to the personalities of the two champions, from their favourite foods to their favourite track, talking about music, holidays and clothes. All with the smiles of ‘normal’ people who are at the same time so special.
Hi everyone, here is a cool feature on Kimi Raikkonen’s personal helmet artist and designer Uffe Tagstrom from the latest April issue of F1Racing magazine. A nice insight into the helmet evolution of one of the most iconic racing drivers in the world.
I watched this documentary (view here) on Saturday night on Sky2 and it was a great insight to just how much passion and work goes into making an F1 car for a historic team. 2014 is a year of big changes in Formula 1 and Ferrari reveal their 3 years of planning and expectations, including with partners Shell on creating the perfect fuel mixture for a V6 Turbo engine.
With unprecedented access in the team’s Maranello factory, Ferrari team members share their thoughts and we also get to see exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso work in the team’s highly advanced F1 simulator – a pitch black room with a bunch of engineers on the other side watching everything with sharp eyes.
We also get to see behind-the-scenes at the first roll-out test in Jerez where the team met with an undesirable first taste of the car but worked hard and most importantly kept progress on track.
