Quite many of you may have seen, that I met a new person. That person was Kimi Räikkönen, and I can just say that in my own opinion, he is a friend of mine now.
Let’s go back to when I hadn’t met him yet, when I had just seen him on TV and in those NUMEROUS tabloids… I didn’t really give a rats ass about, what everyone was saying about him. I just knew, he had a weird voice. That thin, unstable voice has been my own savior quite often, cause my own voice has been just that, on top of being unstable, very slow, weak and unclear. It was nice that someone so well known and famous, was sharing that with me. I had heard the super funny and straight, short answers he’d given to press. On my own opinion they were always super hilarious. About the bad press I can’t say anything, cause I don’t really read that much tabloids… But I know, that he has gotten his fair share of that, too.
After all I’ve fallen in love with the fact that, Kimi just is Kimi. I can’t even imagine all the media hassle around him, but at least when I met him, he must’ve been just himself. And that’s something I really respect.
Now, to the Sunday. We went to Vierumäki with Makke, and after rocking it there, we came to Espoo. Makke had told me, that Kimi is in Town and I was of course anxious to meet this Fella. We went to the quite PIMP garage, where he was at, to I meet him. Now we must take everything back, I met Kimi. A normal dude, who just happens to be a star… Because he is so darn fast with his car.
I asked if he had heard from the FightBack? He had and I told some more of it, and answered his questions, cause hey, I think that everyone who hasn’t met me beforehand, would have at least a few questions… Then I suggested a fair trade: “How about, if I’ll give you this cap and you’ll, buy me a recumbent?” I asked that half jokingly, but very hopefully, and he answered: “Yeah, you’ve got yourself a deal! But you must remember, that your job is to cycle enough for me and Makke too…”
I was jumping of joy and I will for sure cycle enough for them. Kimi should watch out, cause that formula 1 can’t be that fast… I might take over someday!
About Kimi, I’m of course super grateful and stoked that he helped me like that. And about the Spa GP, everyone take a close look at Kimi! He’s going to be fast. And he’s a Fighter 😉
Ps. Kimi has approved that text^on top, but doesn’t have an idea about this… This is the section, in which I’m going to speak straight to Kimi: Hey Dude! Be fast, as I told everyone already… and best of luck to the race!!
Pss. See you soon!
