Caterham F1 team rookie Swedish driver Marcus Ericsson says during Kimi’s early years the Iceman was his idol.
“Kimi was my idol at a young age. I drove karts when he began his Formula One career. It would be great to drive against him in a race, a real honour.”
“I believe that all Scandinavians like Kimi; his style and his talent behind the wheel,” Ericsson told MTV3.
Ericsson does not feel he is like Räikkönen as a person.
“Kimi is Kimi and I’m myself.”
Ericsson said he’s been to Finland a few times but has no other connections to Finland, or actually… there’s one connection he’d like to mention: “Usually we beat Finland in ice hockey,” Ericcson bragged.
