Kimi Raikkonen has dashed his hopes of scoring a strong position at this year's Rally of Spain by rolling his car on the 3km warm-up stage yesterday. His team found damage to the roll cage, meaning he won't start the rally today.

Ironically, before the event Raikkonen said: "If you go like crazy on the first day and go off, then you don't learn anything. And that's why I'm here: to learn." Kimi managed a graceful exit from the upside-down car, but co-driver Kaj Lindstrom was left with his backside dangling in front of the camera – click below to watch the video.
