Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen is looking forward to this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix at the Interlagos circuit, the penultimate race of the 2016 Formula One season.
The Finn heads into the race trailing team mate Sebastian Vettel by just nine points in the race for fourth place in the champion with just two races remaining this season and just one point ahead of Max Verstappen.
Speaking ahead of the race in Brazil, the Iceman commented by saying:
It’s a good place to go. the track where he clinched the World Championship title with the Scuderia in 2007. “It’s a different and “old”, traditional circuit. It’s about short laps and not so many corners, but it’s hard to make a very good lap time and the grid is always very tight there. To lose one tenth means losing a lot of places. Also, there aren’t so many circuits going in an anti-clockwise direction, so it’s always different. Obviously it has been resurfaced many times, and it always goes very well at first. But then year by year it becomes more and more bumpy and it makes it more difficult. They changed the kerbs a bit, so the flow of the circuit also changed a bit. However, it’s one of those circuits where it’s difficult to go fast even if it might not be so tricky to drive.
