Kimi Raikkonen saves day for young fan

When everybody's favourite mumbler, Kimi Raikkonen, wrecked out on the first lap of the Spanish Grand Prix Sunday, a young Ferrari fan in the crowd showed more emotion than Raikkonen probably has, total, in his lifetime. Sometimes you have a bit of luck, like last year, sometimes you don't as we can see this year.

"I got hit on the right rear corner, I think it was Bottas, and then obviously the auto jumped because of that and I went into Max".

His spirits picked up a bit shortly afterwards, as he was seen celebrating for Raikkonen's teammate, Sebastian Vettel, and his thrilling pass on Valtteri Bottas ate, which occurred at the end of the long run down to Turn 1.

Ferrari was made aware of the young boy's plight, and Thomas was tracked down and invited to meet Raikkonen, who presented him with a Ferrari cap in a moment that was nearly the highlight of the afternoon.

They soon turned to smiles, though. However, Bottas had the inside line, and appeared to brake earlier than his rivals, allowing Verstappen and Raikkonen, who were also side by side, to swing around him around the outside.

"I got hit in the right rear corner, in the rear wheel".

"It was an unfortunate start to the race which ultimately finished it also", he said. "I tried to go around the outside as there was plenty of room there." explained Verstappen after the race.

This was his second did-not-finish this year after Bahrain, when his brakes failed, sending him into the wall.

It was not all bad news for Red Bull, however.

Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen says that Kimi Raikkonen was not to blame for the contact that resulted in both drivers retiring from the race. And, call it F1 karma or not, Bottas' vehicle breaking down in a cloud of smoke allowed Ricciardo to reach the podium. Today we will enjoy the podium but tomorrow we need to understand how to further close the gap to Ferrari and Mercedes.
