1. ‘Leave me alone, I know what I am doing!’
Kimi Raikkonen was on to his first victory after his comeback with Team Lotus in 2012 at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. More than him, his racing engineer was panicking, poking the Finn again and again about precautious things to do. In response to this, Kimi shouted on the team radio,
‘‘Just leave me alone, I know what I am doing!” to silence his engineer till the end of the race.
He’s a world champion after all!
