Ryan Blaney on Kimi Raikkonen debut: Amazing road racer and an F1 champion but..

Kimi Raikkonen will make her NASCAR debut. Many are skeptical about his debut, and Ryan Blaney had a lot to say. “It is hard to tell. I am not sure. I feel like it is going to be tough to just jump in it with 20 minutes of practice.

He is an amazing road racer and an F1 champion but that is hard for anyone to do. To jump in a new car. I don’t even think they can go test anywhere with that thing. the rules don’t allow it,” said Ryan Blaney, as quoted by firstsportz.


Of course, it won't be easy for Kimi since this is his debut and he doesn't have that much experience driving a NASCAR car. Although he is an experienced driver who has shown his qualities, he will have a difficult job, but we expect only the best from him.

“It will be tough just jumping to something brand new. Going to a place where he hasn’t run much and try to learn a new car and everything will be tough but he is a great race car driver and I am excited to see how he does.

It will be tough for sure. It would be for anybody. It will definitely be tough for him to get going with the limited practice that we’ve got,” concluded Ryan Blaney.


Kimi Raikonnen statement

Kimi Raikonnen was also clear before his debut, and hopes for a successful debut.


“We had more talks about it, how would it work, where the race would be, and all sorts of other things. There are a lot of things involved, and it all made sense to me. It’s one race, so it made sense for all of us as a family.

I always enjoyed it when I had my few races [in the United States]. Hopefully, we have a good race and good fun. Obviously, it’s a new car and I’ve never been to the track. But I’m sure we can figure it out,” Kimi Raikkonen said.
