Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel will team up for the last time in Abu Dhabi this weekend as Kimi would bid farewell to Ferrari and move to Sauber from next season.
The duo have enjoyed a very healthy partnership with each other, one that both Vettel and Raikkonen cherish. But with Ferrari deciding that it was time to move on, Raikkonen will now have to ply his trade at his boyhood team during his final few years in the sport.
Raikkonen and Vettel have enjoyed some memorable moments together, and with the Abu Dhabi GP coming up, the most memorable moment that springs up is them riding the Ferrari world rollercoaster in 2016.
The Ferrari World is an amusement park in Abu Dhabi, one that is home to the fastest rollercoaster in the world, with a top speed of 240kmph.
Before the 2016 Abu Dhabi GP, the duo rode the rollercoaster together, with Vettel swaying his arms around and Kimi sporting a straight face(pretty regular Kimi stuff).
Check out the video:
While other people on the roller coaster can be seen swaying from side to side, the two Ferrari drivers were able to use their core and neck stability to remain fairly stable during the course of this roller coaster ride.
Coming to the Abu Dhabi GP for this year; while there isn’t much in terms of the constructor’s or the driver’s championship to fight for, the race will serve as a farewell one for Alonso, and will be Kimi’s and Ricciardo’s farewell race with their respective teams.
The last weekend should be one full of emotions and hopefully one with some exciting racing.
