Kimi Raikkonen is a throwback racer of the highest order. He tells it like it is. He doesn’t seem to spend a lot of time worrying about working out. He plays badminton with Sebastian Vettel. He has a great sense of humor. He likes drinking… a lot.
But he’s also a kind fellow, as Ferrari driver Felipe Massa showed on Instagram this morning.
Professional racing drivers frequently trade helmets with each other. It’s a way to build camaraderie as well as a way to make a pretty bitchin’ collection of helmets.
Raikkonen and Massa agreed to trade helmets and Kimi just dropped his off with Felipe. But he also came with a surprise for Felipe’s son: A miniature replica of his helmet. That’s just straight up cool.
