u wrote in a few replies ago tht the only person who can confirm what was written is wolfie who translated... :huh: I am confused now hahahah


To be clear, I said that she translated it for us here, a few pages ago and that if you want to know if on Kimi's official site is the same version, you should ask her to see if she recognizes it.
I don't think that it's Wolfie's version. There is a person that takes care of this things on his site.


P.S. I said to ask her for more details as it's not fair for me to speak on her behalf.

It's not the same text. Different translation

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:

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.

Agree 100%. If he can't find satisfaction in WRC ( team for next year, better results) then now is the time to come back, even if not in the best team ( and there can always be surprises too)...in this way he'll be in the circle when seats are open.

Maria,
Off-Topic: show
They r thinking either Columbia or NYU but NYU is obviously more accessible and I heard Columbia is moving their B-school to the bronx??? Not sure about that... yes it would cost a ton of money, but they are in an international school now and the fees are already high - think I'm prob used to the high fees :80:

Thanks. And I am usually right so... :lol:
I do love him in the WRC but to really get a feel of the action you have to be there and I dont have a budget for more than 3 or 4 rallies a year. Even if it is cheaper than F1, you still have to go there. That is my egotistical motive.

As for Kimi, he wants to get back into F1. Why else would he let Robertson talk to the teams. Or put that stuff up on his website. He loves winning and circuit racing is his forté. Talent up the wazoo so a shame to see that not being utilized to the fullest. To win the WRC while starting at 30 yrs old is a pretty tall order - even for Kimi.

Perhaps I can clear some of the confusion. There were two articles, the first one is from Heikki Kulta speaking more to the drivers like Button, Alonso, Massa ext. The second article is from yesterday and it was NOT done by Heikki Kulta, it more team bosses like Haug and Whitmarsh ext. The article from Heikki Kulta is the one that was used on Kimi's official website, and it isn't Nikki's translation.
