Kimi Raikkonen does not regret leaving Formula 1 because of plenty of “fake things” in the sport these days.

Raikkonen left F1 for the second time after the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP. He was not disappointed about it and lately, he explained why.

“There are so many things that are making no sense, at least in my head, what happens here,” the Finn told Autosport.

“All kinds of bullshit that goes around. We know it, but nobody says it. Things that I don’t think that even should be.

“A lot of things are such fake things in here. It’s good to be out. Mentally, it’s very good to be out of all that bullshit for a while.”

Raikkonen assumed that money had affected F1: “Money, for sure, money has changed [things], like any sport.

“The more money you put in, the more politics. In general, in any country, there are games that people never know until you are inside the whole thing.

“For sure money plays a big part, and power. I guess people want to have power, this and that. I think there would be a lot of good politicians that would do well in actual politics!”
