When Tears Turn Into Smiles - Quando Le Lacrime Diventano Sorrisi

ENGLISH EDITION - Formula One driver Kimi Raikkonen would probably rather forget his performance in the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona on 14th May, but for one young fan it was the race of a lifetime. Raikkonen was forced to retire after a crash on the very first turn left his Ferrari’s steering column broken. As the disappointed Finn climbed from his car, TV pictures showed a devastated young boy in tears in the grandstand.


ITALIAN EDITION - Il pilota di Formula 1 Kimi Raikkonen probabilmente avrebbe preferito dimenticare la sua prestazione nel Gran Premio di Spagna del 14 maggio a Barcellona, ​​ma per un giovane fan è stata la gara di una vita. Raikkonen è stato costretto al ritiro dopo un incidente alla prima curva che ha lasciato il piantone dello sterzo della Ferrari rotto. Mentre il finlandese deluso saliva dalla sua auto, le immagini televisive mostravano un giovane ragazzo devastato in lacrime in tribuna.


ENGLISH EDITION - Thomas Danel, a six-year-old Ferrari fan from Amiens in France – he even has a cat called ‘Schumie’ - was gutted that his hero had been forced out. Quickly he and his family were invited down to the formula one paddock, where Thomas’ tears soon turned to smiles when he got to meet Raikkonen — nicknamed “The Ice Man’’ — who gave him his Ferrari cap. “This has been the most fantastic day for us”, Thomas’ mother Coralie said, “we could not believe it when they came to get us and took us to Ferrari. This is great for fans like us, it really makes F1 and all of its people come alive. Brilliant!”


ITALIAN EDITION - Thomas Danel, un fan di sei anni della Ferrari di Amiens in Francia - ha persino un gatto chiamato "Schumie" - è stato distrutto dal fatto che il suo eroe fosse stato espulso. Rapidamente lui e la sua famiglia sono stati invitati al primo paddock, dove le lacrime di Thomas si sono trasformate presto in sorrisi incontrando Raikkonen - soprannominato "L'uomo di ghiaccio" - che gli ha regalato il suo berretto Ferrari. "Questo è stato un giorno fantastico per noi", ha detto la madre di Thomas, "non potevamo crederci quando sono venuti a prenderci e portarci alla Ferrari. Questa cosa è fantastica per i fan come noi, rende davvero la F1 e tutte le sue persone vive. Brillante!"
