Why everyone loves Raikkonen

Formula One is known for heart-stopping moments as opposed to heartwarming, but that was not the case for one lucky fan at the Spanish Grand Prix. After Kimi Raikkonen crashed out of the race on the first turn at the Circuit de Catalunya, TV cameras picked up on young fan Thomas Danel, crying hysterically at the sight of his hero’s race coming to an end so early on.
Ferrari were alerted to the young boy’s reaction and tracked him and his family down before inviting them to join ‘Iceman’ and the team in the paddock. Tears soon turned to smiles and Thomas and Kimi were pictured together in the Ferrari garage where he was presented with a team cap by the man himself.
