Kimi Raikkonen will soon turn 41, but he is still one of the most popular Formula 1 drivers, and now everyone is wondering if he is going to retire or renew his contract with Alfa Romeo for another season.
In the course of an unusual interview, which appeared today on Instagram of his wife Minttu, this topic is also raised, but mainly the questions are devoted to family life …
Q: How did you meet Mintu?
Kimi Raikkonen: We met in Finland during Johannus, the summer solstice festival. That was a long time ago. We then had fun with our good friends.
Question: What is the most difficult thing in your life together?
Kimi Raikkonen: (thoughtful, silent and smiling) Mmmmm …
Question: The answer is wrong! Of course, everything is fine and easy! What do you value most about Mintu?
Kimi Raikkonen: Her laugh. She has a good sense of humor and I love that.
Question: To what extent can it influence your decision to stay in Formula 1 for another year?
Kimi Raikkonen: She is ready to make any decision, but we don’t know her yet. We will see.
Question: When is your wife’s birthday?
Kimi Raikkonen: Coming soon!
Q: What is your favorite dish that Mintu makes?
Kimi Raikkonen: Fortunately, now we have a chef, and in general Makaronilaatikko is a Finnish pasta casserole.
Q: Who drives a car better in everyday life – you or Mintu?
Kimi Raikkonen: If you ask her who is better at driving on normal roads, Minttu will, of course, say that she is. In fact, I don’t know, because we are not competing with her, but we just get from point A to point B. The rest is not so important.
Question: Do you want you to have another child?
Kimi Raikkonen: I have always said that I want us to have five children. We still have two. But let’s see, maybe in the future …
Question: What is your wife’s favorite drink?
Kimi Raikkonen: White wine. And after it comes, perhaps, lemoncello!
This was another wrong answer, in fact water …
