Kimi Raikkonen won his last Formula 1 victory on October 21, 2018 at the Texas COTA circuit – the Finn was still driving for Ferrari and won the US Grand Prix. This historical fact was mentioned by Justin Marks, co-owner of the Trackhouse Racing team, whose car the 2007 world champion will pilot this weekend in Austin.
“Experience is important here, and Kimi already knows how these races go, he has already spent some time behind the wheel of our car, and of course he does not need to learn this track,” Marx commented on Sirius XM radio station, talking about Kimi’s preparation to the NASCAR race. – He won his last victory at COTA, he has competed here many times in Formula 1, and very successfully, and he likes this track.
In general, the problem of lack of experience has largely been removed, because last year Kimi worked with us on tests, and also spent one race. So it’s all part of the process, and I think eventually he’ll get to the point where he’s going to be a big player in NASCAR.
It’s impossible to achieve this in one weekend, simply because there are so many new things to learn, but I’m very pleased with how our Project 91 program is progressing. So everything will be fine, especially since Kimi will have interesting opponents this weekend, including Jenson Button.
