Raikkonen after criticism: ''Nowadays people get angry about everything''

Over the years it isn't just the Formula 1 cars that have changed. Through the eras the personalities and lifestyles in the sport have changed drastically. Kimi Raikkonen has taken to social media to poke fun at this evolution 

According to Raikkonen, everyone is angry

''It was a bit different when I started Formula 1, but that has been the case in recent years. People get angry about everything these days, but unfortunately that's what this world is like now'', said Raikkonen according to Motorsport-total.com. The Finn will also hunt for Rubens Barrichello's record this weekend, because with a start at the Russian GP Kimi equals Rubens' total of 322 starts.

Kimi crosses the line

''Every record is broken at some point, so it doesn't really matter to me. Maybe I look at it differently later in life, but right now I just want to race and do my best,'' said Kimi. The Finn got another time penalty in Mugello because he had crossed the line of the pit lane. In the end it cost Raikkonen one place and two points.

''Of course I know the rules, but I saw the smoke behind me in that last corner and thought someone had gone off. So I already assumed it was a Safety Car, but I had to wait for the call of the team. I did see that I was crossing the line, but I hoped they hadn't seen it. Sometimes you get away with it and they didn't see it in a hurry, but of course I knew right away that I was too late," concluded the world champion of 2007.
