Kimi Raikkonen insists that his motivation to compete in Formula 1 is on a high despite his stint at Ferrari towards the end where the Finn seemed disinterested in the sport.

Raikkonen had made his exit from F1 at the end of the 2009 season, amid speculation that he wasn’t motivated enough to continue.

One such example emerged when he was seen busy enjoying an ice cream in the garage at the Malaysian Grand Prix, during his final year at the Italian team, after the race was stopped due to a heavy downpour.

"What can you do if the team tells you that your car is broken because they have an issue with it,” Raikkonen revealed in an interview featured on the Official F1 2012 Season Review. “That you cannot race even if I asked that I want to race.

“People try to make a lot of bullshit for nothing. I mean there was absolutely nothing more for me to do to than eat the ice-cream," he explained.

The episode, however, became famous with his current team banking on its popularity last year, when it treated journalists in the media centre at Sepang with a Magnum stick.
