Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen is looking forward to this weekend’s United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
Raikkonen goes into the race having finished the Japanese Grand Prix last time out in fifth place and is currently five points ahead of team mate Sebastian Vettel in the race for fourth place in the Drivers championship.
Speaking about the Circuit of the Americas, the Iceman commented by saying:
It’s a nice circuit. “They put a good design in it, plus it has uphill sections and it’s not just flat. I think it makes it more interesting. Last year we had a very bad weather during most of the weekend. It was not very nice for any of us, drivers and spectators, but it’s part of the game. It’s a nice city, a nice place for the US Grand Prix with a lot of people. Obviously it’s possible to overtake during the race but it’s quite a short uphill for this. It helps to slow down the car and with the braking, but the corner is not the easiest one. However, it’s a good circuit for making an exciting race.
