Kimi Raikkonen gave out T-shirts to everyone at Lotus sporting his "leave me alone" radio message.

Kimi Raikkonen has given T-shirts bearing the words "leave me alone, I know what I'm doing" to his Lotus colleagues.

The Finn used the phrase on his radio while on the way to victory in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Earlier today, 500 T-shirts in Lotus's black and gold colours arrived at the team's factory.

When asked about his choice of words, Raikkonen told BBC Sport: "I understand the team is just there to try to help and they are doing the same job as I am doing.

"I am not a big fan of being told many things because I know pretty well what I have to do [and] what is going around, so if I have some questions I will ask and they will help."

The race win in Abu Dhabi was the 33-year-old's first since taking a two-year break from Formula 1.
