Classic Kimi on his using number 7...

"There's no particular story linked to it," Finnish driver Raikkonen told www.ferrari.com.

"It's the number I already had last year and I saw no reason to change it. I like it which is good enough isn't it?"

Jenson Button's father John dies aged 70





Quote:
Formula 1 driver Jenson Button's father has died of a suspected heart attack at the age of 70.John Button, who has been a strong guiding force behind his son's career which includes winning the 2009 world championship, was found dead in his home on the French Riviera by a friend yesterday.
A statement released by the driver's agent read: "It is with great sadness and regret that I can confirm John Button passed away at his home in the South of France on Sunday.
"John's children Jenson, Natasha, Samantha and Tanya and the rest of the family are clearly devastated and ask for their privacy to be respected during this extremely difficult time."

Kimi back to work
season can't be far off now surely...

Quote:

Kimi Raikkonen has started simulator work ahead of his return to Ferrari for the 2014 Formula 1 season.
The Finn, who won the 2007 world championship for the Scuderia, is now in his first week working at Ferrari since agreeing to return. Ferrari has confirmed Raikkonen arrived at Maranello this morning and will spend three days working with the engineers and running in the simulator.
"It's good to be back at work," said Raikkonen. "I began by getting used to all the new systems and procedures that we will use this year. From this point of view, the simulator is really very useful."
Raikkonen missed the final two races of the 2013 season in order to have back surgery. He first visited Maranello the week before Christmas, and will stay until Wednesday on his latest visit.
Despite the fact he has not driven for Ferrari since the end of 2009 and the major rule changes for this season, Raikkonen says it's not overwhelming.
"It's true there's lots to do but the workload is not much different to what it was in the past," said Raikkonen. "For me, these days in Maranello are also an opportunity to be with the team and spend a bit more time with my many friends here."

I REALLLLLY want to see Kimi do well this season. I just hope Maranello can give him and Fernando cars that can compete.

Nice short tribute on the BBC F1 page:

"Jenson Button's father John had been a permanent fixture in Formula 1 since his son's debut 14 years ago.

"The perfect 'racing dad' - he was there at his son's wishes for support and advice if required, but never interfered or got in the way.

"A very decent rallycross driver in his time, John Button was a bon viveur and heartily jovial character. Rarely very far from a glass of red wine, he was popular throughout the sport.

"'Papa Smurf', as he was known, was the source of many a great story from behind the scenes. The paddock will be a duller place without him."

All I wanted from the guy was that he fasten just one more button on his shirt.
