Kimi’s Wife Needs Support Too!
The wife of 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen will next weekend fight for her own title.
Jenni Dahlman-Raikkonen, a model and former Miss Scandinavia who married Ferrari’s Finnish driver in 2004, is listed as one of the 165 international entrants of the prestigious Munchen-Indoor equestrian event, to be held at the Olympiahalle in Munich.
The German newspaper TZ speculates that Raikkonen may attend, even though he is allergic to horses.
"With Kimi you never know," his manager Steve Robertson is quoted as saying.
Jenni owns four horses, three of which were reportedly bought for her by Raikkonen. They are stabled in Riesenbeck, Germany.
"Of course I support my wife," Kimi said recently.
"You can see the passion in Jenni for her own sport. The same passion which I have for racing – although I do have more horsepower," he joked.
"I have tried riding with Jenni but I’m so badly allergic to horses that I couldn’t really do it," Raikkonen added.
These quotes from Kimi aren’t too recent, they’re from an interview of the couple over a year ago! But seeing as Kimi is completely free right now, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind going to support his wife – you go girl! Apparantly, BMW Sauber have an event in Munich too and Kimi’s close friend from his Sauber days, Beat Zehnder, will also be there.
