Brazilian GP – Penultimate round of the championship
Kimi: “Fun to drive”
Maranello, 10 November – Formula One flies off to South America for the penultimate round of the championship, at Brazil’s Interlagos circuit. The Sao Paulo track is an unusual one, the shortest on the calendar after Monaco and Mexico, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less enthralling in the eyes of the drivers. Speaking after joining the rest of Scuderia Ferrari at last weekend’s Finali Mondiali event in Mugello, Kimi Raikkonen has special memories of Brazil, as it was there that he secured his world championship title back in 2007.
“What I remember most about that weekend is the determination with which the team set about securing the goal it had set itself going into the event, namely winning the championship,” he told ferrari.com. “I like this track, even though it’s very short, because if you tackle it properly, it’s great fun to drive. Last year, the track was resurfaced and the grip level was high, something drivers always like as it means you can be more aggressive. The fact it’s a short track doesn’t mean it’s easy to set up the car. There are many factors to take into consideration, not least of which is the weather.”
