Former F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen saves a dog from dehydration

Kimi Raikkonen protagonist of a beautiful gesture towards a poor dog. Former F1 world champion driver with Ferrari in 2007, on vacation in Tuscany, Italy, while he was out and about with his little daughter, he noticed a parked car with a dog inside.

Raikkonen immediately went to the adjacent ice cream parlor and got a cup of ice cream with fresh water and made the poor dog drink. Räikkönen intervened in time when he witnessed such a scene. If the windows allow you to pass a small bowl, you can water the animal.

Only in some cases can the car window be broken to help the dog. In the video we see the former Ferrari champion, who until last year drove the Alfa Romeo, approaching a car, accompanied by his daughter Rianna Angelia Milana, and inside there is a dog who, given the very temperatures alte was suffering.

Raikkonen then cleans the little girl's ice cream cup, fills it with water and, through the partially lowered window, passes it to the dog allowing him to drink.
