“Ice man” melts into Fireman Kimi

Formula One star Kimi Raikkonen has taken part in a unique job swap – becoming a firefighter for the day.

The Ferrari ace took the wheel of an 18-tonne fire truck, usually driven by Mohd Uzair bin Abdullah – a veteran with Malaysia’s Fire and Rescue Department.

The Shell V-Power high-speed challenge took place at a specially constructed track in Senawang, Malaysia.

“I take my hat off to firefighting experts like Uzair whose job is to protect us all,” said Kimi.

“Whilst I never thought our jobs had any similarities, today I have learnt that protection and performance are important in both of our worlds,” said Kimi on the Job Swap challenge.”
