Kimi in Drone Race | Shell #Motorsport – Full Version
The video shows Scuderia Ferrari Formula One driver Kimi Räikkönen racing a go-kart around a snowy and icy track, competing against a drone to highlight the performance on Shell V-Power and Shell Helix Ultra in extreme conditions.
[Brief snippets of dramatic sound from each clip play]
A quick shot of an icy landscape is shown which then quickly interchanges between Kimi closing the top of his race suit as he looks down. A snapshot of a drone hovering appears before cutting back to Kimi closing his suit and beginning to look up towards the camera. This is then quickly interchanged multiple times with Kimi racing the go-kart in the snow with the drone chasing and Kimi looking up towards the camera.

Camera cuts to a top down view flying over a snowy wooded forest which then moves to close up shots of Kimi putting on his Scuderia Ferrari nomex shirt, pulling up his race suit, closing the top of the suit with the Shell Pecten and UBS logo visible, a Shell Helix sign at the ice karting track with snow gently falling, tree branches with snow frozen on, Kimi putting on his racing boots, and picking up his racing gloves.
An aerial view of the ice karting track in between the mountains is shown which then quickly cuts to shots of Kimi walking into the snow carrying his helmet, first out of focus then closer up and in focus. The drone appears hovering in the snowy landscape as Kimi looks up towards it, preparing to jump in the go-kart. The camera quickly cuts to the drone hovering and lowering itself in the snowy landscape before fast moving shots are shown of Kimi putting on his helmet, an extreme close up of Kimi’s right eye and nose inside the helmet, a head-on shot of Kimi in the go-kart lined up alongside the drone on the start line and then a side shot at the start line as Kimi turns to his left to look at his opponent.
[Dramatic music plays]
A Swiss flag is dropped by the starter and the camera quickly cuts to the rear left wheel of the go-kart spinning in the snow, the drone zooming off in the snowy landscape and a shot looking back from the go-kart’s front wheel to see Kimi leading with the drone over his shoulder chasing.
The drone’s viewpoint is shown with Kimi ahead in the kart, which then cuts to the drone flying through the sky, a close up of Kimi driving and a shot of Kimi skidding through a corner with the drone chasing above. An on-board shot from the kart driving the track appears followed by a wider shot of Kimi turning through a corner throwing up snow and ice, a view from the back of the kart and then the drone’s viewpoint as Kimi slides through a snowy corner of the track.
Kimi’s right-front tyre bashes through a mound of snow (an explosion sound features), the drone flies through the snowy environment, Kimi is shown looking back over his shoulder for the drone, a wider shot of Kimi going through a hairpin as the drone chases, the drone flying through the air, a Shell V-Power banner in the snow, an unfocused shot of the kart skidding and a close up of Kimi’s eye concentrating. Kimi is shown turning through a long right-hander and battling with his skidding kart with interchanging shots from on-board and exterior. The drone is seen flying overheard and Kimi is then shown from the drone’s viewpoint marginally ahead before a number of interchanging shots of Kimi driving through the snow and the drone flying through the air are shown.
[Dramatic music builds to a crescendo]
Kimi smashes through another snow mound (an explosion sound features) with quick moving changing shots from on-board Kimi’s kart, overhead from the drone’s viewpoint and a close-up of Kimi’s eye. Kimi is then shown driving towards the finish line as a man waves the chequered flag, with the drone crossing the line just behind him in second. Kimi passes the chequered flag and spins around in the snow in celebration.
