Kimi Armed and Ready to take Formula 1 Championship with New Weapon

Ian WalshContributor IMarch 2, 2009

Mr. Räikkönen comes to the battlefield with a custom made sniper rifle, in a land previously filled with fully automatics.

The days of the over-searing, rear end skidding, trigger happy Uzi is over.

This is the year for the smooth foot, soft hand, and the patience of a marksman. The very qualities that Kimi is known for.

The new car has less down-force, and slick tyres. that equals high speed straits and high speed exits.

Kimi has reportedly said that he is happy with the car, as if he has just been fitted with a tailor-made suit.


Feels good, doesn't it, Mr. Räikkönen?
