Not me, I won’t pull out over tyres – Ice­man

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

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 haven’t seen it, I heard,” he said, when asked for his reaction to the state­ment made by the Grand Prix Driv­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, in which they threat­ened to pull out if they felt the tyres were un­safe.

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