Kimi Raikkonen suffers even more problems with the drink in practice in Turkey
Kimi raikkonen doesn’t seem to be able to shake its long-standing problem with the operation of its watering system in its cars, and this was once again on display in Turkey for Alfa Romeo.
One of Formula 1’s most popular viral clips in recent seasons came at the 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix, when Raikkonen and his Ferrari The engineer got lost in translation when his drinker hose was disconnected, leaving him without hydration for the remainder of the race.
“No, no, Kimi, no, you won’t have the glass” has since been a part of Formula 1 folklore on social media, but her problems continued in training on Friday at the Turkish Grand Prix.
“I have water running in my fucking boots because your watering system is leaking like a ****,” Raikkonen said on team radio while on the track, which then aired on the World TV stream.
Kimi losing her shit due to her drink leaking is a sensational viewing.
And the reason he’s leaking in his boots is because he disconnected it himself because he was fed up with it not working properly. # F1

“How is it so hard to do simple things right? Asked the 2007 world champion in his garage, his engineer responding: “Apparently the pump was not working, so maybe it’s leaking elsewhere.”
“Yeah, because I disconnected it!” Came the angry reply from the disgruntled driver.
“It kept leaking in my fucking helmet, so I logged out and now it’s like… I don’t know what the fuck the fuck is going on.
“The simplest part of the whole car and we can’t fix it.”
After his troubles in Hungary three years ago, Raikkonen was again denied access to his water at the Monaco Grand Prix this season, after the hose came loose during one of the most demanding races of the year.
