Earlier today, Alfa Romeo drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi unveiled their official 2019 livery ahead of the pre-season test. Since this is the first time the drivers are going around the track in their 2019 machinery, mistakes are expected. Even F1 veteran, Kimi Raikkonen was not spared.
Oh no, Kimi! 😮

The Finn had only just come out on track when his lost the rear of his car. In a separate incident, Sebastian Vettel also spun around, but he was able to carry on. However, his former teammate wasn’t so lucky as he skidded off the tarmac into the kitty litter and got beached.
The embarrassed 2007 F1 World Champion was left to explain to the team what went wrong as the C38 got towed back. While in the stricken car, he tried to get out as soon as he could but only succeeded in budging slightly and it was curtains for Kimi Raikkonen.
