Kimi on a mower

He may have had a terrible race at last weekend's British Grand Prix at Silverstone – crashing his car on the fourth corner of the first lap and causing the race to be red-flagged for an hour – but Finnish F1 supremo Kimi Raikkonen proved that he hasn't lost his touch behind the wheel, after winning a recent lawnmower race.

Yes, that's right, it seems when the world's top-flight drivers aren't battling it out in the latest hybrid racing cars, they like to keep their skills sharp with a bit of friendly competition at the lower end of the motorsport hierarchy.

Joining ex-F1 drivers Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson at an unnamed grass circuit, Kimi – looking a little overdressed in his Ferrari overalls – sets about demolishing the grid in a calculated manner worthy of his 'Iceman' moniker.

Packed with wheel to wheel action – arguably more so than an entire season of F1 – the film makes for entertaining viewing. Kimi even sticks about afterwards to chat to Brundle about his goals for the rest of the GP season.
