Watch Kimi Raikkonen take the LaFerrari for an unplanned spin

What happens when you playshowman in the all-new 963-hp Ferrari LaFerrari? Will it slide more gracefully than Meryl Davis and Charlie White? Or will it just crash?

Thanks to Ferarri F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen, we now know the answer: You'll crash. Or at least mow the lawn.

Yes, Raikkonen was caught by the videographers of Maranello showboating in Ferrari's $1.3 million hypercar, getting a tad excited attempting to lay down some rubber. And who can blame him? But as you can see in the video below, TheFerrari doesn't exactly play nice. Rather she squirms with no progression, snapping viciously from side to side before letting go into an Italian impression of a John Deere.

If it was anyone else, we'd lay the blame squarely on the hack at the helm, but in this case, it's one of the best F1 drivers from this past decade, who has a street named after him at Scuderia Ferrari along with all its other F1 champions. At least we get to hear the car at full bore — a rare sound with Ferrari behind schedule, attempting to produce a weapon that can annihilate a racetrack, not its surrounding greenery.
