The Renault GP pilot Kimi Räikkönen will test with Renault GP’s two-year-old F1 car in January. Räikkönen also took the time to talk about his recent snowmobile rally accident in Austria, explaining that he was little-bit surprised by the widespread reaction.
“We don’t test the new car until February so it’s a long wait,” Räikkönen began. “However, I should be able to jump into a two-year-old F1 car in January. Of course, there will be the usual training, but I will also be working on getting to know the team better and making sure I fully understand all the changes since I have been away.”
“I was surprised by how much attention there was over me falling off a snowmobile,” he said. “You can watch it on YouTube and it was probably the smallest and slowest crash I’ve ever had. It is almost embarrassing! I won a snowmobile race before the start of the 2007 season and that year didn’t go badly for me so who knows?”
