The first and last authorized book about Kimi Räikkönen
What does a normally silent man talk about? What does he think, a man whom many people have heard about but few really know?
The Unknown Kimi Räikkönen is the story of a man of humble origins, who made his way to the top of an unusual profession. In this book we hear, apart from Kimi himself, from his mother, brother, wife and trusted friends. Others have their say, too: drivers, team bosses, mechanics, his physiotherapist, his manager, and an ordinary Formula 1 fan. The book tells about Kimi’s driving, family, trust, leisure, and the dramatic moments of his life up to now. The story in the making is going to be fantastic, humorous and moving, and will also open up a breathtaking world for those with no interest in motor sport.
“‘It would be brilliant to drive in Formula 1 incognito,’ Kimi says, and I can confirm that this first sentence is on record in my dictaphone. And when he says it, Kimi knows that no such world exists or will ever exist. ‘It’s possible to move a razor, or drive a lawnmower incognito, but not a racing car worth seven million euros.’”
