I Want This T-Shirt! "Leave me alone. I know what I am doing"

BBC Sport - Kimi Raikkonen gives entire Lotus team radio message T-shirts

Quote:
Kimi Raikkonen has given his entire Lotus team T-shirts emblazoned with his now-famous radio message during his Abu Dhabi Grand Prix victory.

The 33-year-old Finn took his first win since his return to the sport this year and his team's first since the 2008 Japanese Grand Prix.

On Friday 500 T-shirts carrying the slogan: "Leave me alone, I know what I'm doing" arrived at the factory.

The T-shirts are black, with the words in gold, reflecting the team's colours.

YOu can buy a Kimi shirt through his Kimispace site. Not the same one he gave the team but a "I know what I am doing" shirt none the less

Too bad that shirt looks like crap... I mean really... cartoon figures? You need to be 12 to wear a shirt like that in my opinion.

I prefer the entire quote; it's a bit more profound. Love him or hate him, Kimi is definitely one of the more entertaining souls in our sport.

I've listened to it several times and it really sounds like he either says:

"Just leave me alone. I know what I'm doing."

or

"Yes. Leave me alone. I know what I'm doing."

I like the first one best

Lotus F1 team actually uses the cartoon figure in their marketing collateral. They refer to him as Mini Kimi and take pictures of him in odd locations around the tracks. I'd love one for my desk.

In my office we have adopted his expression, use it regularly (not at each other much though!).

How often in daily life does someone explain to us how to do something we've done a thousand times, and you just want to say what he did?

Sort of hard to tell but I believe you are correct.

I think you are correct. Used my CC and that's what came up and it sounded like but if that's the shirt he gave to the team... oh well.
