While Kimi Räikkönen may have driven to an impressive fourth-placed finish at the German Grand Prix – which ultimately became third, following Sebastian Vettel’s post-race penalty – it would seem that the Finn is better on four wheels than two feet.
Not for the first time, the Lotus F1 driver has been snapped falling over head-first…
Germany’s Bild newspaper was first to published these snaps of the 2007 World Champion attempting to make a hasty getaway after the race at Hockenheim by taking a shortcut over a fence near the paddock car park.
Unfortunately, Kimi’s lead feet meant he didn’t scale the fence too elegantly, tripped over and tumbled head-first onto the bonnet of a luxury car.
Sometimes he needs to learn that it’s easier to just walk through the photographers and journalists like everyone else.
Some of you may recall grainy video footage of a rather under the weather Kimi taking a tumble off the upper deck of a boat in Monte Carlo harbour a few years ago:
