I had to look up what an "AMA" is.

With more than 5,000 posts, I don't think my question would even get read.
Use every man after his desert, and who should scape whipping? Use them after your own honour and dignity.

Ask Me Anything. So celebrities will do these as a way to reach out to fans. Gives you an opportunity to ask them questions and they’ll respond.

I’ve read a few good ones. Taika Waititi and Kevin Smith were good ones

Ok cheers. Don't have time to go through the thread right now, were there any interesting questions and answers?

Just jumped over to have a look. It looked like he held off answering questions until after the GP. Not anything overly insightful, kind of a typical Kimi interview.
* If he could change one thing, it would be to remove the Thursday media commitments, but he has no power to do that, so why bother talking about it
* He didn’t mind the AMA, because he got some different questions
* He wishes the media would ask different questions
* He was asked who could be the next Ferrari champion, he said anyone had the potential to be if the car is right
* Asked who his favourite person to race against was, he said there were a few. He didn’t want to call them out, they knew who they are
* Only people I saw get a mention was Seb and Antonio. He gave them wraps as 2 teammates he got along well with
* Someone asked who’s faster between him and Robin, he said Robin had a weight advantage

Had a quick look at the thread and baffled why people wrote paragraphs for a question.

Yeah, he kinda didn't answer anything of note - pretty much the same boring character you see getting interviewed track side.

I think this shows the sense of humour that Kimi has and that we as fans rarely see. That's probably the closest we'll ever see to the private face of Kimi Raikkonen.
