Devastated fan was cheered up after he met his idol in the paddock in Barcelona
A LITTLE Ferrari fan was heartbroken when Kimi Raikkonen retired from the Spanish Grand Prix in the first lap and was left sobbing in the stands.
But his nightmare scenario turned into a dream come true for the young enthusiast as he was brought to the paddock to meet his idol.
Racing officials arranged to take the devastated fan from the crowd and into the Ferrari lounge in the paddock.
Rakkonen retired from the race after he collided with Max Verstappen’s Red Bull, forcing the pair to retire.
The young fan who was already kitted out in an official Ferrari top was then given a new cap to replace his other Ferrari hat.
