It’s always good to see F1 drivers competing in other racing championships. Kimi Raikkonen’s exploits on four wheels outside of F1 are much celebrated.
This one didn’t end so well, though – the Ferrari star crashed his Abarth Grande Punto S2000 on the third stage of the Rally della Marca in Italy.
He was 17th overall and eighth in the S2000 class at the time of the crash.
This is the third time he has competed in the Tommi Makinen Racing-prepared Punto.
Hopefully this minor skirmish won’t prevent him joining in other rallies and races. He famously contested and won an ice mobile race before the start of the 2007 championship under the pseudonym ‘James Hunt’.
