Räikkönen was found and was immediately surrounded by fans

The long wait was awarded when Kimi Räikkönen, who was lost 'somewhere in China' finally managed to get to the Shanghai F1-paddock.

Räikkönen was meant to participate in his Lotus-team's press conference but something else happened. Apparently Räikkönen wasn't able to get to the place in time because of being stuck in traffic and they already started to wonder on the paddock where on earth the Iceman is.

- We have lost Kimi somewhere in China, the team's representant told news agency SID earlier on Thursday.

In the end Räikkönen did however manage to get to the track-area and was immediately surrounded by his die-hard fans. Iceman's autograph was once again hot stuff among the Chinese fans.

Räikkönen managed in the end to wade through the fan-groups into Lotus premises. They published a photo today where Räikkönen is sitting beside Eric Boullier - and is yet again signing postcards.

- And at the same time in the backroom.... two new faces has joined the party, Lotus writes.

And right after that Räikkönen had to do PR-tasks and go to the press conference and on the stage together with Boullier.
