Minttu and Kimi Räikkönen interview in Finnish Elle as his wife makes shocking Revelation

A sportive blond man opens the kitchen’s fridge door and looks at what to eat. Attention is drawn to the man’s left arm, where his son’s face is tattooed. There are also several magnets with the same little blond head on the door of the fridge. The man spreads butter on his rye bread and eats the bread quietly standing, looking pensive on the sea.

It’s hard to believe that this tender Finnish man is Formula 1 driver Kimi Räikkönen. Kimi is not known to be needlessly gentle; he is the Iceman, who behaves indifferently towards the media and answers the journalists’ questions sharply. The Iceman, however, seems to be the opposite of the man I got to talk to in Porkkalanniemi. He speaks beautifully of his wife and family and appears humble.

The life of family Räikkönen is surprisingly normal. Kimi seeks out his rye bread himself from the store and does not wait for someone to butter his bread.

Beside the rye bread plate on the kitchen table, lies a coveted Hermes Birkin bag. It belongs to Minttu Räikkönen, a determined woman who calmed Kimi.

Minttu and Kimi Räikkönen gave Elle a rare joint interview at their home in Porkkalanniemi. It turned out that the couple, traveling by private jet, still goes shopping at one of the nearby markets.

Twisting like a serpentine. Such is the dirt road, which runs along the route to Porkkalanniemi. And what would be more appropriate; namely located on the peninsula is Kimi and Minttu Räikkönen’s villa, Villa Diva. Despite its name, the villa fits into the natural landscape.

Minttu and Kimi’s own road to a married couple was much more straightforward. Right here, on the rocky peninsula of Kirkkonummi, they met for the first time about four years ago. Working as a flight attendant, Minttu’s curiosity and friendship led her to a Formula One driver’s party.

“We had mutual friends but I did not know Kimi before. And I never would have guessed that we become a couple. However, I noticed quickly that we have fun in each other’s company.”

At that time Kimi had a party reputation, and the party was in accordance with it. Minttu felt very comfortable and in the end she stayed in the villa for the night like the rest of the entourage.

“I have also been partying in my life but between us Kimi has been party animal. But it’s maybe part of growing up and young man’s desire to show off.”

 

At the end of the party, Minttu – then still with her surname Virtanen – returned to her apartment in Mannerheimintie. Minttu was spending her summer holiday at home when the phone rang the next day – and changed her life completely.

“To my surprise, Kimi asked me again to his house. I asked him who else was coming. Kimi replied: only you.”

Luxury hotel atmosphere

We trundle along the complicated road with the shooting crew. The journey from Porkkala motorway to the holiday home takes about half an hour, Kimi reportedly fifteen minutes.

The atmosphere in Porkkalanniemi now is much more serene than in summer 2013. Opposite a couple, married last summer in Tuscany and a two year old Robin. Minttu glows with peaceful charisma of pregnancy.

As usual, Minttu has woken up with the cockcrow while Kimi and Robin have slept longer. It is the end of January and Kimi is spending his last holidays.

Minttu tells that she finally feels at home at the cottage in Porkkala because she managed to complete the interior to her own taste.

“Kimi has given me free rein in terms of interior design but of course I ask for his opinion. Luckily our tastes fall in line so that my ideas have gone through,” says Minttu.

The interior of the cottage became lighter and the murals of the bedrooms have been completed the previous day. The former gym has been transformed into Robin’s large play room with a slide. From the living room and kitchen you can enjoy a spectacular view of Porkkala’s back. It is less than 40 kilometres to Estonia.

Nevertheless, the family spent most of their time in their modern Swiss home.

“It’s spacious and the house has a lot of window surfaces. Very different to our Finnish home,” Kimi describes.

He refers to a 500-square-meter house in Kaskisaari, Helsinki. There is a strong reflection of Minttu’s touch: the interior design is minimalistic and the color choice is calm like a luxury hotel.

“When Kimi is away, I’m usually at Kaskisaari because I want to be close to my friends.” Minttu says.

Dreaming of fashion industry

On the kitchen table there is a brand new Hermes bag that Minttu bought for the sports gala in January. There, Kimi was awarded with the prize for ambassador of sports. The bag is leaning against her “big sister”, coveted Hermes Birkin bag which Minttu bought the year before last. Minttu does not have to wait in line like ordinary shoppers for their luxury bags because she has her own prime supplier.

On her wrist Minttu has another desirable object: The white gold Cartier Love bracelet, worth thousands of Euros, which she received from Kimi as a Christmas present – the gold bracelet of the same set Minttu received as morning gift. Minttu follows fashion closely and reveals her dream of the future: when the kids are a bit bigger, she wants to work in the fashion world.

“It may be an own brand of clothing or something else related to fashion. On the other hand, the field of sports is also interesting,” says Minttu, formerly a personal trainer. “When Kimi will stop driving, it is my turn. I’m not going to remain a housewife.”

When Minttu met Kimi, she served as flight attendant for airline Fly Be. She flew her last work flight in spring 2014 and has since focused on traveling with Kimi and supporting him.

The husband’s exceptional profession inevitably affects the lives of both. For example, Minttu would like the family to go for a holiday in the warmth but Kimi enjoys being at home after traveling.

When traveling with Kimi, it is also important to note that someone is always asking for an autograph or taking a picture of one of the most famous drivers in Formula One. That’s why Kimi travels with private jet. But even more important reason, is that Ferrari might call him at only a day’s notice to Maranello.

Family trips are also flown on a private plane. On the plane it’s easy for Robin to sleep and play and they are often accompanied by a babysitter who speaks English to the boy.

“However, if I fly with Robin to Finland, we will be on a normal scheduled flight from Finnair,” says Minttu.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Ended Up on the Wrong Side of the Law, charged with making trouble with two policemen

NASCAR icon Dale Earnhardt Jr. and 2023 Cup Series champion Ryan Blaney were recently on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and talked about the Netflix special NASCAR: Full Speed among other things. During their conversation, Dale Jr. opened up about his traffic violations and revealed the interesting encounters that he had with 4 different police officers.

He took a trip down memory lane to remember how he got his first speeding ticket and quipped that he had received not one, but four tickets between the ages of 16 and 18. He told Clarkson, “I had a few issues in the first two years of having my license, from 16 to 18. I got four tickets, and the funny thing about it is, is that it was four different officers who told me they all gave my dad his first ticket, so I don’t know how that is possible.”

Dale Jr.’s father Dale Earnhardt was one of the biggest names in stock car racing since its advent in the 20th century. While it is natural for anyone to be known as having interacted with the legend, Dale Jr. can’t quite put a finger on how four different officers could have given him his first ticket. However, he did have a more important lesson to take away from the tickets he got

“I learned my lesson,” he affirmed. “I haven’t had any problems since then.” Dale Jr. is one of the executive producers of Full Speed. The docuseries has been very well received by drivers and fans since its premiere last month.

The instantaneous impact that Full Speed has been having on NASCAR
During the last race weekend, several drivers voiced their support for the Netflix docuseries and said that it was helping the sport generate new fans. One of the series main characters, Denny Hamlin said, “I thought it was a very good introduction for new fans. Because they also were kind of teaching you some 101 stuff, like, here’s how this works.”

Xfinity Series racer and Live Fast Motorsports co-owner B.J. McLeod compared it to the Hollywood hit Days of Thunder and mentioned that it had the best potential since the movie to attract new fans. He said, “It’s something that people should see, and I think that it was an unbelievable opportunity for NASCAR to have that on Netflix.”

The docuseries chronicled the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series playoff run and featured others including Ryan Blaney, Denny Hamlin, William Byron, Ross Chastain, and Dale Jr., himself.

Chase Elliott’s Crew Chief Publicly Exposes Golden Boy’s Fatal Error

With 480 pts. and 19th rank in the 2023 Cup Series standings, Chase Elliott’s struggle to enter playoffs remains the same. However, in a jaw-dropping revelation from Hendrick Motorsports, a hilarious game of memory between Chase Elliott and Alan Gustafson has unveiled a side of the No. 9 Chevy that fans could never have imagined.

Picture this: Daytona’s sunny day and the racing enthusiasm are palpable. Amid the COVID-tinged atmosphere, in the fateful year of 2020, Chase Elliott finds himself facing a curious predicament. The stakes are high as he and Alan Gustafson gear up for a race day challenge. The challenge seems simple: “What must Chase have on race day?”

What must Chase have on race day, HMS crew chief indulges in a funny banter

During the HMS fun game, Driver and Crew Chief Challange between the Hendrick Motorsports crew chief and the NO. 9. Chevy, a question was raised: ‘What must Chase have on race day?’

To this, Alan throws the first stone with his answer: “His Helmet.” A confident yet spontaneous answer to the ambiguous question, given the no-brainer importance of a helmet for a high-speed sport like NASCAR.

The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series champion, chimes in with exasperation and amusement, and said: “HANS. Where was it? Was it HANS? Should we tell that story?”, added amusingly. HANS device undoubtedly is a crucial device that keeps a driver’s head stable in high-speed crashes.

The Duo gave a flashback to Daytona, where Chase Elliott stood on the grid, with the weight of the race day excitement hanging in the air. Alan chips in, a mischievous grin hinting at the punchline, and revealed: “You didn’t have your bus and he’s on the grid to start the race like Daytona. He went straight to the car and I was like, hey, you got your helmet?” And then, the punchline that cracks open the story: “He just turned white.”

In a sequence that could rival any comedy script, the #9 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driver’s race day hit him like a ton of bricks just as the national anthem wraps up. “I think the anthem was done,” Chase quips as the weight of the missing helmet sinks in. The ensuing exchange between Chase and Alan is priceless, as Alan further queries, “Where is that? Is it Ryan’s bus?” Well, I might have to ask Chase.

But this is not HMS’s No. 9’s first release of a fun trip down memory lane involving their drivers. There’s more.

In a lighthearted game with the Hendrick Motorsports team, NASCAR stars Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson joined forces to poke fun at their teammate William Byron for his notorious habit of forgetting where he parked his car.

The host initiated the game by asking, “[Who is] most likely to forget where they parked their car?” Elliott held up Byron’s name card, and the young driver admitted, “Probably me.” As the room erupted in laughter, Alex Bowman and Kyle Larson chimed in, further solidifying the playful accusation. Byron even recounted a past memory of receiving an award for getting lost in a parking lot in high school, garnering more chuckles from his teammates.

Building strong relationships within a team, as seen with the Hendrick Motorsports team, is vital for success and consistency. This extends to the Motorsports industry, where collaboration and effective communication are paramount. Just as the NASCAR-winningest team thrives on a blend of humor and teamwork, professionals in the industrial kitchen trade must foster a workplace culture that supports innovation, productivity, and collaboration.
