Do You Think These F1 Racers Like Rollercoasters? You’d Be Surprised
To the F1 faithful, Kimi Raikonnen and Fernando Alonso need no introduction. These two are some of the most death defying drivers the sport has ever seen. You would think they would enjoy a rollercoaster ride, right? You’d be surprised.
Kimi is notorious for taking huge risks on the track, and also for speaking his mind, while Alonso is beloved by his countrymen. Perhaps this helps explain what you are about to see in this video. Alonso on the right and Kimi on the left are in the front seat of this rollercoaster track to maximize our enjoyment of their reactions.
Only, they don’t seem to care at all. Kimi isn’t shy about showing his disdain for the whole exercise, while Alonso gamely raises his hands, but also seems bored.
Maybe, there’s something lost in the translation here? Like maybe these racers are used to even higher top speeds, so there’s no thrill. Add to that the fact that they’re not in charge.
So, there you have it. If you wanted to know what kind of people don’t get excited for rollercoasters, they’re definitely race car drivers. There is no doubt these guys are fearless on the tracks.
