Not me, I won’t pull out over tyres – Iceman
ALWAYS a maverick, Kimi Raikkonen lived up to expectations yesterday when he said he had no intention of withdrawing from this weekend’s German Grand Prix even if his fellow-drivers did in reaction to a repeat of the tyre blowouts seen at last weekend’s British Grand Prix.
The Finn, known as “the Iceman”, said he will race for Lotus in tomorrow’s race whatever happens.

“I am sure it is not going to happen anyhow. – Sapa-AFP
