  1. …and here’s 34: “Spit!”


  2. I love all of them xD he’s amazing!


  3. Reblogged this on 人魚姫 and commented:
    oh~ the words of this boy… never fails to send people laughing.


  4. I guess he can afford to be arrogant


    1. Nah… Arrogance is thinking big of yourself. Kimi just doesn’t give a shit and says it how it is. Big difference.

  5. Amazing….!! 😀 😀


  6. In a day where too many drivers of all disciplines are little more than a bunch of crybabies, Kimi is the ultimate throwback. He loves to drive and he loves to party, and when he opens his mouth, he is the most honest driver on the grid because he just says it like he sees it. I’d love to see him come run another NASCAR race, and I hope he would choose to do it at Talladega. The infield parties there are the stuff of legend, and I think James Hunt 2.0 would love it there. No yachts per se, but the girls are just as pretty.

    1. Haha, I think Kimi will be trying a bit of everything when he quits F1 for good 🙂


  7. Ref: the “having a shit” comment, all the video clips and narratives always stop before Brundle’s clever reply…after composing his laughter (live TV remember) Martin said…”well at least you’ll have a nice light car on the grid!”
