[Video] Kimi Raikkonen uses a lawnmower race to beat Formula 1 legends

The Ferrari Formula One driver decided that a green grass race would suffice to prove today’s driving skills against former racing legends – Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson.

Kimi Raikkonen, the well-known 2007 Formula 1 world champion, also had a stint in the 2010 and 2011 World Rally Championship seasons but ultimately returned this year to his one true love – Ferrari’s F1 team.

In preparation for the Silverstone British Grand Prix, the Finn had a fun competition that involved three other Formula One racing drivers, mainly Martin Brundle, Johnny Herbert and Anthony Davidson, besides some menacing racing lawnmowers. He took the win on his dark green #98 lawnmower despite a truly bumpy circuit, but the weekend didn’t end that well for him after that.

During the Formula One racing weekend he crashed his Ferrari F14 T and made some victims in the process, which is just the culmination so far of a very poor half season. In the nine races that took place he only gathered 19 points in the drivers’ standings, being currently in the 12th position. He is even far behind his less experienced teammate Felipe Massa, which so far gathered 30 points and is 10th overall.
