Kyle Larson Attending Abu Dhabi F1 Race, “Down” to Test if Teams Offer

Speaking exclusively on’s This Week with Will Buxton show, 29-year-old Californian Larson – who won the Cup title at Phoenix for the Hendrick Motorsports team last weekend – said he’s never seen an F1 car run in the flesh on a grand prix weekend.

When Buxton asked him if he knew there was a post-event test, Larson replied: “I’m down, I had no idea there was a rookie test. Hey, if I’m there then I might as well get into a car.

“If there’s a team that will let me, I would pack my helmet bag right now. Head there, go get some laps. Let me know!”
