Daniel Suarez has warned Kimi Raikkonen he will face “aggressive” rivals at Watkins Glen, with the NASCAR series having a different take on racing to what he is used to in Formula 1.

Raikkonen walked away from Formula 1 at the end of last season, but it did not take long for the racing bug to bite again with the 2007 F1 World Champion announcing he will be doing a one-off appearance in the Cup Series for Trackhouse’s Project 91.

The Finn has already been in action, putting a Chevrolet Camaro through its paces during a driver orientation test at Virginia International Raceway road course.

But while he got to know what the car is “somewhat doing” as he put it, Suarez has warned nothing can prepare him for the “aggressive” racing he will be up against this weekend.
