Now it’s Kimi and Michael

Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen have starred together in a television commercial for Ferrari parent Fiat.

The advert, filmed recently in Germany, depicts the past and current world champions sitting in the new Fiat Bravo T-Jet road car.

Schumacher, 38, is busily talking about the black hatchback before Finn Raikkonen snaps: “Are we going to talk or drive?”

But talking to the Roman newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Raikkonen insists that he gets along fine with Ferrari’s former champion.

“We are not best friends, we don’t phone each other every day or go out with each other, but that doesn’t mean anything,” the Finn said.

“The same is also true with Felipe (Massa),” he added.

After testing at Jerez on Tuesday and Wednesday, Raikkonen flew to Helsinki where he will apparently be honoured by the Finnish government with a public holiday in his name.

Schumacher takes over from him on Thursday, where he will drive alongside Raikkonen’s 2008 teammate Felipe Massa for the last two test days of the year.
