Kimi Raikkonen has shocked the motorsport world by announcing that he’s going to be driving in NASCAR later this year.
Americans have no idea yet what they are in for. On paper a 2007 F1 World Champion, former McLaren and Ferrari driver and current rally driver is a wonderful addition to the series.
But how the hell will they cope with him, will an American audience understand that a sportsman can be grumpy, non-communicative and sweary?
It is just possible that this will make NASCAR and all American racing implode into itself with confusion.
So not all bad.
