I remember another guy who liked to race snowmobiles...

Gilles Villeneuve on racing snowmobiles:
"Every winter, you would reckon on three or four big spills - and I'm talking about being thrown on to the ice at 100 mph. Those things used to slide a lot, which taught me a great deal about control. And the visibility was terrible! Unless you were leading, you could see nothing, with all the snow blowing about. Good for the reactions - and it stopped me having any worries about racing in the rain."

Yes I imagine this would have given Bouiller quite the scare, but you know what? I still think Lotus/Renault were right to allow Kubica to rally, AND to allow Kimi to race snowmobiles. And I don't think they would ever have managed to convince Kimi to sign if he wasn't allowed to race elsewhere.
