Red Bull announced earlier that they want to continue the cooperation with Webber. The problem however is Kimi Räikkönen, who has an option for a position in Red Bull's F1 team. Räikkönen has to utilise his option before the beginning of July.

It has been rumoured that Webber will transfer to Ferrari next season.


This article is basicly the same as other articles about Webber and his comment's about Red Bull, but look at the bold part... the article is stating it as a fact that Kimi has a option for Red Bull's team for next season and he should use this option before July :blink: haven't seen that before...

it could make sense though, couldn't it?

but likely, it is just media speculation... :roll::


Does anyone else see what might happen? According to some 'I like Kimi but... -people' Kimi uses the option although Red Bull didn't want him to do that. Like in Ferrari :fear:

Paranoia strikes again :lol:

Lots of sponsor work? Ah thanks Maria, that rules Kimi out then :lol:

But if Kimi changes his religion :roll::

iirc Kimi said last year in Brazil that Nascar is not an option. so don't worry :lol:

btw soon new Kimi Red Bull merchandise will be available :shhh:


Wow, do you have a link?

I was wondering for a longer time why they don't come out with any Kimi-merchandise since they would be sold out in no time - also thinking that they have him placed in F1 next year so they won't do that at all ''hmm''

I also wonder about that Maria, also how Kimi always says that HE will make his decision as if it would be up to him alone ''hmm''

@ Apple, Imagine MTV3 going crazy with all the different news :lol:

This Webber telling decision will be made by British GP in July makes me believe all the more in the story that it is up to Kimi to sign the option by the end of June.
Curious case of Kimi Raikkonen..

I think so too. My first guess was that there has been one month more: next season contract will published just before/after rally Finland but seems that I was wrong.

I believe Webbers contract expires in July and Kimis choice has to come at the same time. There has been so much talks about it, even Heikki Kulta has hinted towards it by saying its Kimis choice to make.
Nicole is right, Kimi is made a villain again like he would be the driver who isnt wanted.
