Kimi Raikkonen excited about his first Indian GP

Kimi Raikkonen excited about his first Indian GP
It is hard to believe Kimi Raikkonen stayed away from Formula One for two years. The ‘Iceman’ is one of the title contenders this season with six podiums already. Now as the F1 gears up for the Asian circuit, the Lotus driver is eagerly looking forward to his first race in India.

Raikkonen, who returned to F1 after a stint in the World Rally Championship, found the track at the Buddh International Circuit [BIC] interesting on the simulator.

‘It is great to be racing there and the track looks interesting. I always liked to visit new countries and India is an exciting place. As far as performance goes, we won’t know how well the car will perform until we get there,’ said Raikkonen.

Raikkonen and Frenchman Romain Grosjean are part of a brand new Lotus line-up for the 2012 season.

It is sheer consistency that has taken him to third place in the drivers’ standings and that, too, without a win.

‘I have always been pretty consistent and even the car is okay.’ His tone is the same when you talk to him about his return to F1.
