Ferrari World opens and there's a spelling mistake on its Wall of Champions!

Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E has just opened its doors to paying customers. For 225 Arab Emirates Dinars or about US$60 per person, you get to enter a theme park filled with Ferrari themed roller coasters, other Ferrari rides and access to lots of Ferrari merchandise of various sorts. All fine and dandy but the press release pictures had some eagle eyed automotive blog readers slightly humored. And would be a slightly embarrassing one for Ferrari.

It seems they've wrongly spelled Kimi Raikkonen's name on a wall listing Ferrari Formula 1 Champions. 2007 Formula 1 Champion Raikkonen isn't 'RAIKONNEN' but RAIKKONEN. Note the double 'K' and not a double 'N'. Someone in Ferrari World goofed up and now someone in the management should shoot the contractor who printed that wall covering for them.

This is much like the very the time when Ferrari issued a photo of the 599XX's record breaking run at the Nurburgring with a graffiti of a penis in the background. Of course you can expect the spelling mistake to be fixed pretty soon. Much like the removal of the slightly humorous photo showing the 599XX with the nicely drawn phallic symbol from its website. You can read my post on that earlier mistake here.
