Here is the whole interview - please note that they would have had a seat for him this season but all of a sudden all seats are taken :p

Quote:
Red Bull was interested in hiring Räikkönen when it was clear that he wouldn't continue with Ferrari. The negotiations fell apart when it became obvious that Räikkönen wants to go rallying. Now Helmut Marko admits that Kimi's results in rally have been a disappointment to the sponsor.

Oskari Saari:
Helmut Marko is a man who's words weigh a lot. They claim that Marko practically dictates which drivers drive in Red Bull's F1-team. Marko is also a very straightforward man. Red Bull is considering withdrawing from Räikkönen's rally-project. The reason is also clear:

Helmut Marko:
Kimi has had a few crashes and if you have crashes you don't bring results and therefore the output or the PR wasn't as good as we expected.

Oskari Saari:
So you were hoping for better results already?

Helmut Marko:
Yes. Sometimes he had best sector times or best stage time but as you mentioned before, it's difficult to read Red Bull upside down. We were in contact with him and he made quite clear that he wants to go to rally at the moment and we accepted that and we made a deal and as you know he did this season in rally-cars and now we have to see what happens in the future.

For the next season all our seats are gone and therefore we can't discuss anything.

Thanks Nikki, but it doesn't really sound all that positive to me.

Really Boudica :blink:

It looked like he knew himself how ridiculous it sounds that Kimi should have done better this rookie-year and remember how we had no idea of what was going on last year?

They might come out with something explosive soon :cool:

Okay you guys have seen the interview, perhaps the message is different when you see the interview. But something is definitely going on.

Perhaps that is exactly the message he is sending out, if Red Bull doesn't win this year heads will fall. In fact this message might actually be an indirect message to Webber and Vettel.

I'm sure Vettel and Webber are thrilled to find out that last year RBR wanted to fire one of them despite their contracts. :lol:

Wouldn't it be bad for their morale though? I mean, they are still in the championship fight, I don't see how it really helps for Marko to be making comments like this.

Exactly, so why did Marco do it?

Probably typical Marko, opening his mouth first without thinking of the consequences.
