Mar.12 (GMM) Kimi Raikkonen has revealed he actually broke his wrist just before Christmas.

The media made much of the returning Lotus driver's apparently hurt arm, but he insisted at the time it was "the smallest and slowest crash I've ever had".

But during his appearance on the popular British motoring programme Top Gear last week, 32-year-old Raikkonen confessed to having been more seriously injured.

He showed anchor Jeremy Clarkson a big scar on his left wrist, admitting: "I hurt it a little bit, but I had a good doctor to fix it."

"That's a big scar!" Clarkson exclaimed. "Did you break it (your arm)?" he enquired. Raikkonen smiled: "A little bit."
