Kimi Raikkonen has omitted from her schedule a press conference that racers usually do before the start of the race weekend. The Finn decided to arrive in Abu Dhabi from Europe as late as possible, as he will not have to get used to the new time zone.

Raikkonen, who will move to Ferrari next year, according to the team, arrived at the Yas Marine racetrack before the first free practice on Friday, and this is not unusual, although rumors are circulating in the paddock that the Finn has not forgotten. "Rude" calls in India to release teammate Romain Grosjean.

Aside from the drama with a tense radio talk at a race in India, the Lotus team is again reportedly late with payments. Due to the non-fulfillment of the terms of the contract by the team, the Finn was thinking of ending the cooperation early, but after talking to the leading men of Lotus, he changed his mind.

Either way, the last three races of the season will obviously be marked by a tense atmosphere for Raikkonen and Lotus.
