Kimi Raikkonen gave the F1 fraternity something to talk about last night, when he decided to go for the FIA gala drunk.
Kimi, who has openly voiced his criticism for the FIA gala did not quite want to attend the ceremony sober, as he was sure he wouldn’t be able to handle it that way.
And by coming to the ceremony drunk, he gave the F1 fans some memories to cherish forever.
It all started with how Kimi made his entrance while coming onto the stage in order to accept the award.
He kept making gestures, hugging Vettel and just being carefree with all his actions.
While the video of his stage entrance went viral on social media last night, a video of Kimi smoking a cigar and asking the camera to go away has now surfaced as well.

Sitting on his table with Vettel and the Ferrari team, Kimi was enjoying a nice cigar when the camera decided to focus on his table.
Kimi took the cigar and his face off the camera and gestured with his hand, asking the camera to ‘leave him alone and go away’.
Here’s the video of Kimi holding the cigar and asking the camera to go away.

This is amazing. Has Kimi learnt a joke in German and is trying it out on every German he can find? https://t.co/tAC6AK6B58

Ah, Kimi. The only FIA prizegiving I ever went to was in Monaco in December 2007. Kimi was World Champion, looked extremely bored with the whole thing, and couldn't get away fast enough. He seems to have enjoyed this third place a bit more…
