In Finnish media (MTV3) this has been told as rumor, not facta.

OFFICIAL: KIMI RAIKKONEN SIGNS WITH RED BULL RACING FOR 2012
After all public rumors, Kimi Raikkonen has finally made his point by coming to NASCAR. He is signed with Red Bull Racing to replace Kasey Kahne for 2012.

Raikkonen, who is currently competing in the WRC, said he wanted to do this because "NASCAR is totally interesting in my opinion because I remember Juan Pablo Montoya's move to NASCAR and I have been following him a lot."

Kasey Kahne expressed his opinion on Raikkonen coming to NASCAR: "Obviously, Kimi is from Finland and since the Finns don't know much about NASCAR, he will introduce NASCAR to the entire country of Finland. He is an amazing World Champion who can do anything he wants to win and become good at."

Brian Vickers and Scott Speed have different opinions, however. "I am very comfortable about Kimi Raikkonen coming to NASCAR because he is such a great advisor to any driver out there", said Vickers. Scott Speed said, "I can't wait for Kimi to come over because he is such a great World Champion and a perfect teammate."

After all, Kimi said that in 2009 when he was going to leave F1, he said that he could race in NASCAR if he wanted to. But this is about to change in 2012.


Strongly refusing to believe that, strongly!! :<>:

WTF... Seems like more of a hoax to me..
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

Well, there is a few points I dont believe. He says he is very interested in Nascar and has followed it..NO. I dont believe it at all. He has been interested in rally all his life not nascar. There had to been happen something very profound things in his life it he suddenly desided to jump over the atlantic ocean to the other continent.Secondly I dont think Robertsons would have done this beginning from 2012, as Kimi isnt driving anywhere at the moment in 2011 that is , he doesnt say it yet.

WTF??? WTF??????????????? :blink: :blink: :blink:

In the article it says it was written 26, Aug, 2010. So nobody asked him anything regarding this during Rally Japan, there hasn't been any other news, any questions regarding this, there hasn't been any official statement from the Robertsons or from Kimi.

Please, let it be a rumour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *prays*

What? This is funny Kimi said the other time that he isn't too interested in Nascar. :lol:

I think it is a hoax, but just think a lot of people have been complaining about WRC coverage, Nascar at least has good coverage. :rofl:

And speaking about Mercedes, Eddie Jordon said on the BBC during qualifying that a lot of drivers where running in and out of the Mercedes garage. He mentioned "one specific driver" more then once, as being a good option and he knows Mercedes will be interested in, he might have meant Kimi, but I am not sure as he didn't say any names. He also said something about Schumi retiring again and going into driver management, but this is Eddie Jordan we are talking about you cant always take him seriously. I think Haug would love to have Kimi, but I dont think Kimi would be interested. The only interesting option in F1 currently, that can perhaps be taken seriously is Renault.
I see potential there, but Kimi has a good deal going with Red Bull in WRC there is no reason to change. :)

If Michael Schumacher wants to race in NASCAR, the time is now.

Schumacher, who signed a 3-year deal with Braun-Mercedes, has expressed interest in a move to NASCAR. He also says that the cars have become much more advanced than what he previously commented about Juan Pablo Montoya's move to NASCAR. He is also excited about NASCAR's move to fuel injection because he was impressed about it by saying, "I am blessed about NASCAR race cars getting more advanced now and this means the technology is getting closer to Formula One."

Stewart-Haas co-owner Tony Stewart has said he wants to hire Schumacher. "I think, you know, Schumacher has a lot of talent, but his successes in F1 may not translate into NASCAR unless he runs some Truck and Nationwide races." Roush-Fenway co-owner Jack Roush has stated that Schumacher could enjoy a presence in stock cars. "When you look at Michael Schumacher and his ability to win, there is no doubt."

The dream is getting closer to reality.
