Your key to success
The key to success in the sport of Formula One depends on the months of hard work and dedication between the engineers and the driver before the car even reaches the grid. The teamwork is vital. iLOQ’s team of engineers are your key to success by continuing to develop self-powered digital locking and mobile access management solutions that are revolutionizing the locking industry. It is this high level of technology and the team behind it that got Kimi excited about iLOQ.
“iLOQ’s solutions are technically advanced, but they are extremely simple for their customers to use. That’s something that really interests me. And the people that work there have drive, passion and a pioneering attitude. They don’t follow traditional rules but are prepared to break new ground and shake things up a bit. I respect that attitude. I am looking forward to helping them get maximum exposure for their brand.”
iLOQ is driving the digital access revolution, and maximizing safety plays a key role in helping achieve our customer promise of making life accessible. Safety is another attribute recognized by Kimi:
“We all want to feel safe. Whether it’s me in my car, or my family waiting for me at home. iLOQ’s solutions are helping to solve current security challenges and, even though I usually like to be left alone, I certainly know what I am doing by lending my support to iLOQ! We share very common goals in that we take controlled risks in order to achieve great things,” states Kimi Räikkönen.
We wish Kimi great success for the 2019 season and look forward to seeing the Finnish flag flying proudly above the podium, and the iLOQ logo proudly on Kimi’s driving suit.
