Raikkonen gifts ice cream to F1 media in Malaysia
26 March, 2012
The last time he was at Sepang, in 2009, then a Ferrari driver, he caused raucous laughter in the F1 media centre when the global television feed showed him enjoying a chocolate ice-cream and can of Coke.
The rest of the field was damply awaiting the race’s re-start on the sodden grid. There were similar conditions looming in Malaysia on Sunday, so the Lotus team delivered a present from Raikkonen to each member of the travelling press corps just before the 2012 race.
Along with the chocolate treat, a note from Raikkonen read: “Please enjoy this ice cream”. AFP Asia sports editor Talek Harris said his was delicious.
