Meanwhile, somewhere in Finland...

Kimi Raikkonen was driving a Fiat Abarth Grande Punto S2000 rally car in the Arctic Lapland Rally this past week end. Raikkonen was in as much of a stealth mode as a current Formula 1 driver racing a rally car in snow can possibly be and barely appeared in front of the cameras.

The Ferrari driver was not the only Formula 1 World Champion tearing up the Lapland snows, two time world champion Mika Hakkinen was there flogging an Evo 9 ....and Hakkinen was not the only Formula 1 Mika either, Mika Salo was also driving.

Raikkonen ended up 13th ahead of Mika Hakkinen who came in 19th in the same class.
Lots more videos after the jump.
