Yeah, he is hot stuff despite some people claiming nobody is interested..But I very much think he will drive rally next year. He wants to see if he can be a proper rally driver at gravel. Tomi Tuominen in MTV3 blog says Kimis crashes were very similar and just before he drove out-in both cases- he said again the note Kaj had said..and then drove out. It means he still have problems to listen the notes or to keep up with them. Tuominen suggested Kaj should shout louder those places wich they thought would be difficult. So Kimi would know he has to take next corner or braking point extra carefully. Everything hints to the direction Kimi is going to go for it for another year. For now.

Yeah i think he will be in rallying next season aswell. I am sure someone wrote here that Kimi signed a new contract with Citreon a 2 year deal. Was it you?

I could be wrong about both, i am usually wrong.

It does sound like he's made his decision, eh? :confused:

Nope, it was proably some twitter account without reality base what so ever. But could be true.
We are both right this time :p

Give him a car to his liking and it's like he never went away :D That's what I'd bet on.

Actually I think one of the reasons he went to rally was that he can go back to his driving roots. He is driving now from my point of view a car that behaves like a car not like a F1 boat on track.
But he drives all the time,unlike Schumi who drove motorbikes. Rallying might do him good.

I visited today in an official Citroen garage. There was a big poster on the wall where is Kimi and WRC C4. It was really nice. There was no RedBull on the poster (except in Kimi's clothes). The boss thouhgt that Kimi will not go back to F1 and he also wondered why it took so long time before any Kimi material was available.

Seems to be your trademark. :lol: Wasn´t it you who wrote at the autosport forum that a friend of you was out with Kimi and he got the impression that Kimi won´t come back next year? It was already some time ago! Why did you delete your post? I mean I (and I supposte many others) would believe your words as you´re not an attention seeker :)
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)
