most of these people interviewed believe Kimi would not want to go back to F1 even though they would very much welcome him back...I dunno what Kimi feels from those messages...n I feel Kulta is enabling Kimi to remain so cryptic...it is frustraing to say the least...we are closing in on 180 pages with still NO real news ''hmm''

These people also say that Kimi could come back to F1 after one year without any problem

kriss,

at his age it is not a problem but with the seat choices he has, it most likely is the problem, so....

It's funny, if I had to spend a week away from here in the Summer this thread would move maybe three pages at the most. I just spent a week away and I had almost 40 pages to catch up :lol: All very interesting and fun to read, but still no nearer to knowing what's happening :lol:

Tania pointed out that the declaration of Alonso has been cut out from the article of Hekki Kulta, in the official site of Kimi. ''hmm''

Fernando Alonso shook his head when asked of Kimi's chances to come back.

guys, before starting a controversy :roll:: I think it's better to know that the articles with quotes were published 2 times. Actually, there are 2 articles, first there was one with quotes from Heidfeld, Alonso, Webbber, Massa, Button .... and after a day or two there was a another article with quotes from Whitmarsh, Lauda, Haug, Eclestone, Lauda, ... (and this one is the one on Kimi's official site).

The only one who can tell you exactly is Wolfie as she is the one that translated them.
I saw 2 articles, I don't think quotes were left out, they just published the later one.

I think it was this, but I'm not sure:

thanks momo & Kriss

well nothing controversial from fernando, he only said he didn't have a clue...I thought kimi and alonso were quite good friends from past photos of them together and I think I remember once kimi saying that when he had sleepless nights, he would go and bang on alonso's door to disturb/prank him :lol:

interesting that kimi used wolfie's translated text on his website - wolfie, have u had any contact with kimi, u devil u???? I'm so jealous :blush: speaking of jealous, where has that Dindi gone off to??? she seems to be missing of late!!! :blink:

really? I thought there is someone that take care of the news section there, remember that there is always Finnish reviews and English reviews. So I thought that maybe the company that takes care of his PR things is also responsible for the news section there.

The more I read these comments and think upon the whole situation for Kimi, the more I am convinced that the only right thing for him to do is to return to F1 next year. Even if it is with Renault. He can still win a couple of championships before he retires for all we know. Even if he has to spend a year now and then in an uncompetitive car. But thats the same for everybody. The Renault next year might be like the Red Bull was this year. Its always a gamble. Look at where Red Bull was in 2008 for instance. No where really. Just slightly on the way up.
But if he gets in now there will be more options for him next year if he isnt happy with staying with Renault.

WRC is okay for me too. But he does seem interested in getting back.
