Formula 1 Kimi Raikkonen Star Falls Off Superyacht Monaco

Thi is a video of the famous Formula 1 winner in what appears to be a holiday on a yacht sipping beer and getting a little tipsy. He then appears to slip on the superyacht and fall down and hit the deck. Not one of Kimi Raikkonen's best moments...

As a sports-hungry 11 year-old, Kimi Raikkonen’s youthful enthusiasm for karting quickly developed into his chosen career. The young Finn swiftly stamped his authority on the local opposition before making his mark in international events. Surprisingly, he never won a karting title, but his early racing days singled him out as a future star.

In 2000 - ten years after he had first got behind the wheel of a kart - Raikkonen made the switch to single-seaters. Choosing the UK Formula Renault series as his springboard, the previously title-less driver took the championship with seven wins, 316 points and six pole positions. Indeed, the Finn was so dominant that year, several Formula One teams, convinced of his raw talent, began to court him.

Sauber were the first to make a concrete offer and after a successful three-day test, Raikkonen landed a race drive with the Swiss squad for 2001. Given that he had only 23 single-seater race starts to his name, many questioned Peter Sauber’s confidence, but from the outset Raikkonen’s pace and consistency blew such criticisms out of the water. He ended his first Formula One season with nine championship points - and the admiration of much of the paddock, including, most notably, Ron Dennis.
