Well I would say something to the effect of "see that pedal to the far left? That's called a clutch." but even these cars are neutered now.... What ever happened to 600hp with a true clutch and shifter in the floor? I'll bet Kimi would like that.

The unnecessary and sad death of the finnish driver Henry "Henkka" Toivonen by the grazy days of B-Group missiles in WRC. A while after that the B-Groupers were banned

Ah yes. Did not know the nickname.... Have to blame it on the fans though, you just cant be THAT close to the road without something happening. It was Portugal I believe :huh: The onboards of those cars beat anything from F1 or current WRC for me. Tires tearing up the ground like an earthmover!

Yeah, the cars were spectator friendly but far too dangerous. Like I told Wolfie in another thread, by the time of the accident Audi was about to presentate their newest version of Quattro which had MORE THAN 1000 hps. Sick?? I have a Q off my own and a quarter of the power suits fine :)

Tomi Tuominen, one of MTV's rally reporters, always writes a blog after every rally. He never mentions Kimi but this time he had this to say:

Even Kimi Räikkönen had to confess that the rally was still too demanding for him. Tarmac is the remarkably better surface to the F1-champion. It wasn't yet time to get success from Finland's gravel roads. He has years ahead of him and Räikkönen did confirm with a joy that he will continue in rally in the future too. He has seen F1.
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

Future could be now and future could also be after 2014 for kimi..

so this hardly means any confirmation and yes kimi should be punished with compulsion to do both f1 and WRC for next season for dishing out mental harassment to us fans :lol:
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

he would be a busy man then. nah, I miss him in f1, but I can cope with the situation if he´s happy. neverthless it will be really hard to watch spa, that will be painful -
like a dagger in the middle of your heart!! :fear:
sadly wrc seems to me like a fulltime job, and I can´t divide myself into two. . .



I don´t know where to post this, maybe it´s time for a new thread, but I think it fits also in here.

After two months, here´s my brand-new video. If you liked my Solo con te video, you´ll probably like this one, too. I tried to create some tension (I was inspired by a lovely movie:Atonement)

'Letter from a fan(->me :lol: :wave: )' version 1.0 HD

Music: X-Rays Dog - Vision&Hurts- Wonderful Life

Feedback always appreciated =)
GOODBYE KIMI
GOODBYE RÄIKKÖNEN

Yeah saw that video. Its so kool. Congrats.

And i simply loved the movie Atonement. It cant get any more british than that. Loved it.

And as far as kimi getting busy is concerned than he better be busy as he, the smart ass has kept all of us on our toe since ages now.. :lol:

And finally for Spa i would say that i have pledged not to watch SPA. Come what may i wont be watching SPA live. Thats my way of honoring King of Spa. And more so if i will watch it then i know i am sure to cry watching the race and not seeing kimi there. I perhaps have very timid heart to behave like this.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season
