Kimi Räikkönen talking about Sebastian Vettel.
i love one (1) friendship
I’m speechless… 😍
Last weekend, we have had a lot of moments! so, let’s take a little trip down memory lane! This is SIMI MASTER APPRECIATION POST and it’s dedicated to highlightsandflames . Thanks for your help!
- Both drivers sleep in the same hotel! 🙂
Sebastian have a interview with Ted Kravitz while he is traveling towards the opening of the Casio store. The first question is about next year Ferrari line up and if will be working:
Everytime Kimi is mentioned during an interview, a smile magically appears in Seb’s face. He really can’t restrain himself.
“To be honest, Kimi is pretty uncomplicated to handle.”x
In the meantime Kimi was having a boring press conference… No Seb no party!
That night in Singapore during the “track walking” this is happened with the pit boards of Sebastian and Kimi:
and of course Seb is partner in crime with Red Bull crew:
Q: Kimi Raikkonen could have been your 2014 team mate, but now he is joining Ferrari next season. Have you spoke with him since the announcement?
SV: Yes, we’ve been speaking. I think it is a good move for him and in the end he is returning to a team that he has already been with. Alonso and Kimi will be a hell of a driver pairing and it will be a hard nut to crack. (laughs) How will it be for Ferrari having these two in the cockpit? It will be interesting to see. I know Kimi better than Alonso. He has an uncomplicated character and is not political at all. But how it will be on the track, nobody knows, as I think 2014 will be a tough year for all of us and any prediction is just hot air. X
When asked about the next season team mate, Seb seemed to be a little uncertain. Then, Nira suggested that he prefered Ricciardo, because “Marko said that”…but Seb was clearly struggling not to say that his favourite was Kimi. In fact, at the end he said a few things about Daniel, like how few he knows him, than he started to talk about Kimi (but nobody mentioned Kimi LOL) saying that he knows Kimi better even if he just couldn’t say the same as team mate.
Daniel too, he is your new teammate, also Australian. Was Daniel your favourite one for the position?
S: Well… my favourite…
N: Helmut Marko said he was your favourite one.
S: My favourite… You know what? He is already quite young. It would have been different having an experience driver such as Kimi or Fernando working for the team. However, I think it is a great chance for him.
N: Had they taken into consideration your opinion in order to make the decision?
S: How important was my opinion about the final decision? I don’t know, you should ask Christian or Helmut.
N: You prefer him, don’t you?
S: I know him a little. Obviously, I know Kimi because of everyone knows Kimi. Howerver, I don’t know Kimi as a teammate. I don’t know Fernando as a teammate either. I think that at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who your teammate is, you want to win, and for that to happen you have to win your teammate and every of the drivers.
He always smiles when talks about Kimi
In the afternoon Seb, Heikki, Mark, Kimi and Tony come out all together from their hotel to head to the track, with Seb and Kimi smiling and goofing around. See the video:

soon after we have the amazing “buggy moment” report for first by Teandkimi :
Seb and Heikki arrived first and immediately followed by Kimi. Seb saw the buggy and was like ‘wow’ and he walked on. He didnt wave at us despite the fact that we kept waving at him. (I was waving at Heikki =P)
Kimi got onto his buggy and off he went. Seb and Heikki were walking in front of the buggy and if I remembered clearly, they honked at them. =P
Seb turned around and smiled at the peeps on the buggy. Mark, Kimi’s physio, asked them to get on board. Seb willingly jumped onto it but Heikki was reluctant. Once Seb waved for him to come up, he got onto the buggy and off they went.

Press conference after the race
“Even in the international press conference Räikkönen and Vettel whispered all the time to each other and stopped only when they had to talk in their microphones from time to time.”
Heikki Kulta x
no space between them…
This bromance is at another level.. where no one else in this world exist anymore.
i don’t own SOME of these gifs and photos on Tumblr. if you’d like credit drop me a line cause i’m not sure where these came from. 😉
You survived? Ready for next gp?
Something that’s unique about this race is that the drivers all stay in the same hotel.
