Kimi Raikkonen Reinvents the Selfie with Grumpy Face at Chinese Grand Prix

Selfies traditionally capture moments of joy in a personal way and in the world of sport often give you an "inside" perspective on things.

Kimi "Ice Man" Raikkonen, renowned for being a man of few words and seemingly a bit unhappy with the world at present, reinvented the sports selfie to give us this moment at the 2014 Chinese Grand Prix:

The contrast between Raikkonen and the happy hordes behind him is almost perfect. 

And if you want to know about the mood the Finn was in at the weekend, this exchange (reported by Crash.net) about his motivation should help shed some light:

If I were not motivated I wouldn't be here answering this kind of question. It's f--- all to do with that, we have bad races and that's an unfortunate thing but that's how it goes sometimes. 

Perfect time for a selfie, then.
