Kimi Raikkonen is under fire for building a motocross circuit on his land in Finland without obtaining the necessary permits. Yle, the Finnish broadcaster, reports that local residents have complained to authorities about the noise made by those using the circuit in Kirkkonummi, in the south of Finland.

One resident said: "As I see it, Raikkonen's motocross track was built against the provisions of the Acts."

A local official commented: "We have requested that the landowner gives us an account of the facility. When we get it we can decide whether permission is needed."

Yle said an agent representing Raikkonen, the 2007 world champion who drives for Ferrari, declined to comment to the media.

    • Nah, its still related to an F1-driver. f1today.net published news when Hamilton crashed while hungover, so I guess they had to publish this aswell so they arent bashed for being biased and only publish dumdums on one driver.

    • Regardless of which driver it is this kind of news is just BS to fill pages. Low quality journalism.

      Just loads of random news segments on this site, I dunno why I keep checking, probably because I read the comments more than the news segments, so change of subject.....anyone got F12015 for PS4? :)

    • I lack both a PS4 and the game, but I always accept humble gifts, haha. ;) I've seen Aarav play it on youtube, looks very nice.
