Photographer: Kimi Raikkonen is Rude and Arrogant

Billy Sexton@@billysextonAnalyst IJuly 8, 2008

Kimi Raikkonen seems to be in a spot of bother.

The 'Iceman' pushed a veteran photographer to the ground on Sunday at the British Grand Prix.

Paul-Henri Cahier was trying to get a close up on Kimi before he was pushed over by the Finn.

Cahier was uninjured and therefore has decided not to take any action against the World Champion. He has, however, issued a statement on his website.

"Paul-Henri Cahier luckily did not suffer any injury, and so does not intend to take any action, but he regrets the arrogance with which Kimi Raikkonen treated someone who was merely doing his job."

"Paul-Henri Cahier has been an F1 photographer for almost 40 years and has been close to the greatest champions, but none of them has ever behaved in such a rude manner."

On the other hand, Raikkonen's manager stated that the photographer was touching Kimi with his camera lens and standing on his personal belongings.

Henri says that this is a lie, and although he was close to Kimi, it was completely standard.

Tut-tut Kimi.

And the way the results are falling for Raikkonen (no win since the Spanish Grand Prix), it looks like he is close to being pushed off his 'World Champion' perch by some chap called Lewis Hamilton!
