    Raikkonen enjoys solid Truck debut

    By Diego Mejia Saturday, May 21st 2011, 04:46 GMT


    Kimi Raikkonen survived a race of attrition to finish 15th and on the lead lap in his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut on Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

    The 2007 Formula 1 world champion started from 31st in his maiden oval race, after running 30th fastest in both practice sessions early in the day. Raikkonen had struggled with a loose truck and even scraped the wall during the final session where he reported improved balance on his last run.

    Early in the race and while trying to make progress, he got loose in Turn 3 and ended up brushing the wall, managing to escape with little damage to the right side of his #15 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota.

    The first two cautions, caused by spins from former multiple Truck Series champions Todd Bodine and Ron Hornaday, helped Raikkonen make some progress although he missed entering the pits on the second one due to a miscommunication.

    His team chose to keep him on the track and he was able to race among the top 10, getting as high as seventh as incidents continued to make the caution wave. However as his tyres started to wear he would drop a few spots as others who pitted under the second caution were running on fresher rubber.

    When he was about to pit for the first time under green he got a lucky break as his team-mate Kyle Busch spun and caused another caution. Raikkonen then entered pit road with the rest of the field under yellow, getting back in sequence with the leaders.

    Restarting from 14th after a trouble-free first pitstop, he continued to race among the top 15. Following his final stop for fuel and tyres he would rejoin in 18th as different strategies came into play.

    Raikkonen then survived a second brush with the wall and a car spinning ahead of him within just a few laps in the closing stages of the race. Following some other late incidents, Raikkonen was able to move to 15th place when the chequered flag waved, achieving the goal set by Busch when he announced he was running the Finn last month.

    "The racing was fun, it's a new thing but too many cautions," said Raikkonen after a race that was interrupted by 10 caution periods, most due to incidents where many of the series top drivers and veterans were involved. "Every time when you start feeling that the car is working better then you have a caution and it takes a long time before the handling comes back.

    "I hit [the wall] in the beginning and then I hit much harder, thought I had destroyed the car. It ran really well before the pitstop and once we got the heat in the tyres it sent the pressures up but I think it cost a bit when I hit because we damaged the side too much. Handling was okay, but just with the longer runs we could have improved a bit, just because the car was better and better during the long runs."

    Raikkonen said there was nothing surprisingly difficult about his first race, but declared he was much more at ease with his truck in the race than he had been after practice. He also enjoyed some close battles for position and survived multi-car incidents that unfolded ahead of him.

    "Actually it was more fun than I expected, the racing," said Raikkonen. "You'd rather be higher up [in the order] but [considering] how it felt this morning in practice I'm pretty pleased how it felt in the race. For sure there's still a lot to learn and improve but I think we didn't have any major issues so it was okay."

    Raikkonen's team-mate Busch recovered from his spin to beat Sprint Cup rival Clint Bowyer to victory, claiming his fourth win out of six Truck races he has entered this season. His victory places him only three wins away from 100 victories in NASCAR.

    Raikkonen set for Nationwide debut

    By Diego Mejia Saturday, May 21st 2011, 17:47 GMT


    Kimi Raikkonen is set to move a step up in his NASCAR transition next week by making his Nationwide Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

    The 31-year-old ranked 15th on his first NASCAR Camping World Truck series outing, finishing on the lead lap while surviving a race that saw plenty of incidents involving many of the series' top drivers.

    Raikkonen said that while he enjoyed the race he would have liked to finish higher up on his debut. However, he declared himself pleased with the progress he was able to make from practice earlier in the day at a track he had not seen before Friday.

    Although he refused to confirm he would run in next week's Nationwide Series event at Charlotte, plans were already underway for him to compete in NASCAR's second-tier series before his outing on Friday.

    Speaking after his victory in the Truck series race, Kyle Busch said he has a Nationwide Toyota Camry at his team's shop ready for Raikkonen to run, although he would not reveal the team it came from.

    Kyle Busch Motorsports has not run a Nationwide Series race before, but sources consulted by AUTOSPORT revealed that the team has entered an agreement with series regular NEMCO Motorsports, which fields the #87 Toyota for team owner Joe Nemechek on a regular basis.

    The car has the start guaranteed in next week's event thanks to its current status in the Nationwide owners' standings, saving Raikkonen the need to qualify on speed as he had to for his NASCAR Trucks debut.

    Busch anticipated Raikkonen could have a swift transition to the Nationwide car, specially if Goodyear changes the tyre specification for next week as he believes the one it ran in the Trucks was too hard and lacked grip.

    "Unfortunately, we did not have the handling the way he [Kimi Raikkonen] needed it to be today," said Kyle Busch following the Truck Series event. "He did a nice job from what I understand - I haven't heard, but we might have to put a [new] right side on [the truck]. That's alright - you'll have that.

    "Next week for the Nationwide Series race with the correct tyre, it should be a better feeling car. He should feel a little more grip and should be able to drive it a little bit harder. The engines are a little bit the same and the cars go through the air a little bit better.

    "Traffic will be kind of the same as what he felt tonight. Tonight was a good learning experience and hopefully he learned enough today that will help him for next week and we'll try to make the transition a lot easier for him as best we can."

    Raikkonen will benefit from having a second run at the same track in less than a week, despite driving a different car. Following his NASCAR debut the Finn said his second race would be much easier after learning some of the competition nuances in the Trucks race.

    "For sure it's much easier once you do one race because you learn from restarts the way you should go and stuff like that," said Raikkonen.

    The World Rally Championship competes in Argentina next week, but the event is not part of his limited schedule.

    Montoya cree que Räikkönen tendrá éxito en la NASCAR


    23 de mayo de 2011

    Juan Pablo Montoya se ha quedado impresionado con el debut de su excompañero en McLaren Kimi Räikkönen este fin de semana en la NASCAR. El finlandés, que pilotaba para el equipo Kyle Busch Motorsports en la Camping World Truck Series, terminó en la más que respetable quinceava posición en el circuito oval de Charlotte.

    “Si quieres hacerlo, tienes que hacerlo correctamente,” declaró Montoya a la Associated Press. “Te vas a arrepentir sino lo haces correctamente.”






    “Puede ganarla. Necesita experiencia. A hecho de todo, ha estado en la Fórmula 1, lo ha hecho todo, le falta entender el funcionamiento de los óvalos y lo tendrá en sus manos, pero tiene que disponer de un buen coche.”

    Antes del fin de semana, todavía no habían hablado entre ellos desde que Montoya echara a su compañero de equipo de la carrera en la primera vuelta del Gran Premio de Estados Unidos del 2006.

    “Solo le saludé y le pregunte que tal le iba,” añadió el colombiano. “La gente de aquí hizo lo mismo conmigo, así que si puedo ayudarlo le echaré una mano.”

    Räikkönen, que continuará participando en las pruebas de este año del Mundial de Rallyes, comentó que tal le había ido: “La carrera estuvo bien, pero hubieron demasiadas advertencias, justo cuando el coche empezaba a ir bien se producía una advertencia y luego volvía a pasar un rato hasta que las sensaciones en la conducción mejoraban de nuevo.”

    Raikkonen tests Cup car at Virginia

    By Diego Mejia Tuesday, May 24th 2011, 17:08 GMT


    Kimi Raikkonen is testing a Sprint Cup series car for the first time on Tuesday at Virginia International Raceway as he continues to immerse into his stock car foray.

    The Finn is driving Robby Gordon's #7 Dodge at one of the preferred venues for NASCAR teams to test ahead of road course events, as preparations are already underway for next month's race at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.

    Through his twitter account, Gordon confirmed the 2007 Formula 1 world champion is running his car on a first day of testing, while he plans to be behind the wheel on Wednesday.

    "Just left for Mexico City! Big meetings for speed energy," wrote Gordon referring to his energy drink business. "Testing at ViR tomorrow, Iceman in car today. Trying to give him some speed!"

    Although no official announcement has been made yet by Raikkonen or his team, the Finn is on the preliminary entry list issued Monday by NASCAR for next Saturday's Nationwide Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he is named as the driver for the #87 NEMCO Motorsports Toyota, which is being prepared by Kyle Busch Motorsports.

    Last Friday the Finn was non-committal when asked by reporters about his future plans in NASCAR, while moves for his next step were well underway already.

    Raikkonen podría correr en la N'wide en Charlotte

    By Sporting News Wire Service
    May 21, 2011 6:32 PM, EDT


    CONCORD, NC - Kyle Busch finalmente confesó.



    Sus comentarios previos al viernes no fueron toda la verdad, cuando dijo que no pondría un auto es pista para Kimi Raikkonen la próxima semana en la carrera de la serie Nationwide.




    Busch ha estado trabajando en un acuerdo que pondrá a Raikkonen en un Toyota para el 28 de mayo carrera de Nationwide en Charlotte Motor Speedway. De hecho, el coche ya está en el taller de Kyle Busch Motorsports.

    "No es de mi propiedad", dijo Busch con una sonrisa socarrona, después de ganar la noche del viernes en la North Carolina Education Lottery 200 de las Camionetas Camping World en Charlotte.

    Busch no reveló quién es el dueño, tras admitir que el coche era un Toyota.

    "Usted se dará cuenta de la próxima semana", dijo.

    En su primera conferencia de prensa con periodistas de NASCAR, Raikkonen, mencionó que espera que la unidad en la carrera de Nationwide en Charlotte. Cuando se le preguntó sobre ello, Busch fue perspicaz.

    "Nuestro equipo no tiene una licencia de Serie Nationwide, y nuestros miembros de equipo tampoco pueden estar en la Serie Nationwide u otra", dijo Busch. "Tendría que ser con alguien más."

    Una respuesta inteligente, pero la historia evolucionó. En consecuencia, usted puede esperar ver Raikkonen al volante de un Toyota el 28 de mayo conduciendo un vehículo aún sin designar.

    Cuando se le preguntó si él estaría corriendo la carrera de Nationwide, Raikkonen dijo: "Ya veremos", después de terminar 15º en la carrera de Camionetas la noche del viernes en Charlotte en lo que fue su debut en NASCAR.

    Entonces, ¿cómo hizo Raikkonen para correr una carrera de Camionetas en Charlotte? Él tiene su agente, a quien llamó y no tuvo un no como respuesta.

    El agente de Raikkonen llamó a Rick Ren, director general de Kyle Busch Motorsports.
    Al principio ni siquiera podía revelar el nombre de Raikkonen.

    Busch recordó cómo la oferta se produjo:

    "Les dijimos que el costo de lo que se necesitaba para correr y me dijeron: "Bueno, hablamos luego." Supongo que trabajaron de su lado y sintieron que era un costo bueno para pagar, así que nos llamó y nos dijo: "OK, vamos a hacer esto, queremos hacer Charlotte". "Oh, para Charlotte ya tenemos un arreglo, se puede elegir otro circuito? " Ellos dijeron, 'No, no puede escoger otro, tienes que poner una segunda camioneta en pista". Así que nos dijimos, "No tenemos una segunda camioneta. Así que hablé con el equipo Vision Aviation, y le pregunté si podíamos correr una camioneta de ellos, y así lo hicimos".
