Kimi Raikkonen took a break from Formula 1 and tried out rally racing years ago, and compatriot Valtteri Bottas has shown he's no stranger to it either by competing in events in his spare time.

Together with co-driver Timo Rautiainen, the Mercedes driver tore through the Finnish landscape recently while taking part in the Arctic Lapland Rally. The 31-year-old certainly didn't disappoint, finishing in sixth place in the general classification.

Check out a video of Bottas' adventures in Finland below.
