and maybe ken will bring him home to the US for a publicity tour.

Maria, imagine how frightfully right Apple might have been from the beginning when creating the Kimi Red Bull Rally Monster -thread if Kimi goes to Monster :fear:

On the other hand we wouldn't have to create a new thread for it :lol:

Just like Wolfie told before: it's very funny that Kimi has linked to almost every free (or less free) team :lol: And someone is still thinking that Kimi has not media valuable...

I acutally dreamed this night that Kimi got a podium position at the french rally and me and my friends were cheering like some mad chicks :lol:


I hope I was in your dream too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !yahoo: :C: :1st:

"scoring points in only four of the nine events in which he has competed.

In contrast, team-mate Sebastien Ogier is second in the standings after winning two of the last five events, and in only his third full season"

Well, he should compare their results in Kimi's third year then. Not to mention that Kimi jumped from "don't talk to me in the middle of a corer" to the top class of rally. Many drivers don't even hope to get there for years, let alone regularly score points. Besides Kimi competed in only 14(!) rally in his whole life. A close second, a fifth, and three other top ten is not a bad record.

Yes, and also Ogier is in his third season in WRC, not rally in general....he was driving RALLY CARS before, Kimi didn't!

It's unbelievable to read these kinds of things since when did Ogier win for the first time??? Oh, that's right, this year...

Is it really so that Kimi has to be superhuman in order to get some approval? How many times has Mikko Hirvonen crashed and retired this year? I guess he matches Kimi and nobody remembers that Kimi has started to leave both Hirvo and Latvala pace-wise behind him in some rallies - damn they do have higher expectations than Kimi-fans in general has...

If Kimi would win a rally this year, then it would be: Can't the WDC in F1 even win the championship in rally? Has he lost his motivation and edge?

Jesus, hopefully Kimi has people around him who can tell him that he has done an amazing job for a rookie.

Unbelievable but so much fun since people honestly believe that Kimi is already 'out' and still we see what kind of effect he has in both F1 and WRC when team bosses seem to be more than happy if they can get him.

Emphasis on the word 'IF' :p

Brenda, do you remember last year? Ferrari? No. McLaren? No. Toyota? No. Mercedes? No.

One by one the options fell out and we thought he would have a sabbatical year and KABOOM - Kimi goes to WRC and drives for Citroen sponsored by Red Bull :lol:

Sorry Wolfie, I know you're really mad about the things they write about Kimi but please don't bash Mikko just to make Kimi look better. Mikko's a sweetheart and I feel like I have to stand up for him. :confused:
