We should stay home and forget the racing Raikkonen says if F1 wants to go green

Following Lewis Hamilton's comments about the environment recently; one-time world champion Kimi Raikkonen has said that if Formula 1 wants to go green, then "we should stay home and forget the racing".

Raikkonen did admit that he holds similar views to Hamilton in that case, but he believes Formula 1 is not the best platform to try and promote evironment change comments.

"Obviously, I think it involves everybody who lives on the planet," Raikkonen said on the environment. "In the end, we all try to do what we can. But honestly, we are probably not in the best place to start making big stories out of it, because in the end we're burning fuel for what? To be first, second?

"I mean, for sure we try to do our part always if and when it's possible. But I think F1 is in probably not the strongest place to tell people that is what we should do, because to really go that route we should all stay home and forget the racing."
