Button Dismisses Alonso
After Jenson Button’s appalling race in Malaysia, he practically dismissed Alonso as a possible title threat and called out team mate Hamilton as his main rival. “Even after such a bad race – and that’s hopefully my bad race for the year gone – I’m still only 10 points off the lead, and that’s Alonso in a Ferrari. That’s not the worry,”
Button said. “Lewis is definitely my main rival, and you have to say the Red Bulls as well.”
Jenson is not alone however in this dismissal.
RedBull team Boss Christian Horner also seems to think Ferrari and Alonso are not really a threat as he added, “Ferrari’s victory and Sauber’s second place, we can get over…”
I wonder however if this is just a head game or a serious comment.
If Ferrari get their act together with Alonso behind the wheel, they might both regret their comments by the end of the season. KIMI The ICE-CREAM MAN?
Kimi Raikkonen has come under fire by some fans and media in the past for being somewhat boring to interview because of his monotone voice and lack of energy, but let’s face it, Kimi has given us much to talk and laugh about over his racing career.
His candid comment of his bathroom break during a live interview, his well-documented Gorilla suit incident, his tattoos, his love of a good party and the infamous shots of him reaching for an ice cream with a Coca-Cola in hand.
In one way or another, you can’t help but love this flying Finn whose raw speed behind the wheel and rock stead nerves has given him the nick name of F1′s Ice Man.
Now however, he is also known as F1′s Ice Cream Man. Kimi’s team Lotus delivered the travelling press with an ice cream treat, along with a little message from Raikkonen, “Please enjoy this ice cream”
Looks like Kimi has both a sense of humour and a warm heart to go along with his “Ice Man” alter-ego.
