Ferrari driver and former world champion Kimi Raikkonen has revealed in an interview that he is friends with a legendary American rock singer.

47-year-old Axl Rose is the iconic Guns N' Roses front man, and has known Raikkonen since the Finnish racer's days at McLaren, the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera said.

In the booklet of the band's latest album Chinese Democracy, Axl Rose thanked Raikkonen. "I don't know why, but we know each other quite well," Kimi said.

"We've been together several times, the first time was years ago and he has also come to Finland to meet with me," the 29-year-old added.
