Top 5 funniest moment in Formula One - Slide 1 of 5

Although the drivers and mechanics work around the clock to make sure that the car is in tip-top condition and to unleash the true potential for those V6 turbo beasts, Formula One is not just about all work and no play.

Although the drivers and mechanics work around the clock to make sure that the car is in tip-top condition and to unleash the true potential for those V6 turbo beasts, Formula One is not just about all work and no play. They are human after all and still find time to horse around and play the fool. The 2015 rain soaked US GP in Austin was living proof of that, when the hurricane struck the East Coast it was impossible to conduct qualifying so to kill time and make sure that the fans got their money’s worth the teams came up with innovative ways to lighten the gloomy mood. From break dancing Force India mechanics to the Force India Indo-Mexican wave, from a game of skittles with a ball and a few empty cans of Red Bull to an impromptu waltz in the rain between Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat, from the Williams teams practising for the Oxford vs Cambridge boat race showdown to the Williams and Force India teams having their own version of the affore mentioned race.

Kimi Raikkonen (R) with his teammate Pedro de la Rosa has always believed in total honesty

The 2006 Brazilian GP was Michael Schumacher’s final race in Formula One (until he decided to return, but he would go on to rejoin Mercedes).

Brazilian football legend Pele presented a trophy to the veteran German for his outstanding achievements in motorsports. The entire grid was in attendance to witness this momentous event, but there was one face missing from the attendees. McLaren-Mercedes’ Kimi Raikkonen was nowhere to be found at the ceremony.

Afterwards, when journalists finally caught up with the Finn and inquired about his absence, he responded in his usual blunt ‘Kimi’  fashion: “I was taking a sh*t”

The statement immediately prompted guffaws from interviewers, crew and likely every single person watching.
