Hey lonny that was good, but are you sure Kimi said all that?

Well I mean it's quite a lot from the King of Cool One Liners.   ;) :D

Kimi always struck me as a chatterbox who kept his professional and personal lives separate.  Every once in a while there's an interview which just seems completely out of 'character' for Kimi, offering so much more depth and insight than he is normally known for giving.

Most drivers seem to wear their heart on their sleeves, being who they are, in or out of the car.  I think Lewis is really good at being public/private Hamilton too... though I feel there is much more 'cross over' between real/racing Hamilton than there is with Kimi.  (I wonder if racing under Ron Dennis helped with that.  I feel like he wanted to make sure his drivers have a 'professional side')

Ron Dennis definitely helped, but Kimi also is a lot more expansive when he's with people he trusts. For fairly obvious reasons, he doesn't trust most people with cameras and microphones.
