Raikkonen under fire over motocross track
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.
