🇺🇸 New season ➡️ New helmet. Loving the addition of Nina’s hand and Lauren Bohlander’s kiss to Leo’s, Deco’s and Max’s prints.
I’m also excited about my new Stilo ST5 Zero. First driver in NTT IndyCar Series to have the new FIA 8860/2018 spec. Safety first!

🇧🇷 Nova temporada ➡️ novo casco! Adicionei a mãozinha da Nina e o beijo da patroa ao design pra acompanhar a mão do Léo, Deco e Max.
Esse capacete ST5 Zero novo da Stilo USA é o primeiro na #IndyCar na nova especificação 8860/2018 da FIA. Segurança em 1º lugar!

🇺🇸 Kiks, the way I used to call you. I have no words to describe the pain I feel today, you will be missed. So glad your pain is over and you are in a better place. Love you forever. See you on the other side. RIP Kika.
🇧🇷 Kiks, como te chamava, o que posso dizer... estou sem palavras. Minha segunda mãe, cuidou sempre de mim. Vá em paz, sei que vc está em um lugar melhor agora. Te amo. Nos encontramos do outro lado algum dia.

Great photo TK just like we remember her. A beautiful person. She will be missed my many. Thoughts are with you, love Christine and Steve xx

Kika was a lovely person who made the CART paddock a brighter and happier place. I’m so sorry her time on Earth was foreshortened.

Very sad news. Kika was a wonderful person and always happy to help, and with a lovely smile.

So sorry for your loss- Kika was a treasure, with a beautiful smile, although she has left us, Kika is now visiting with Father Phil - sending prayers and hugs 🙏🏼🙏🏼💔

So very sorry Tony. Sad that Kika is gone, but very glad she was here and you were friends. I always liked her, what a kind, loving soul.

So very sorry TK. All our love and support to you and yours at this time. 🙏🙏🙏

I am saddened beyond words. Mama Kika was a shining light in the paddock. I will never forget her. Rest In Peace, my friend.

I am very sad to hear about Kika's passing. I am not around much anymore and did not know that she was so sick. God Bless Kika. Rest in peace.

Oh no, such sad news. She was so kind to everyone in the paddock.
