Personally I think that if Kimi is offered a seat with Red Bull F1 he'll take it. Red Bull are a top team and Kimi is still a top driver and he'd work very well with Vettel in my opinion.

Webber is the key here. If he stays at Red Bull I think Kimi will stay in WRC.

I really, really want Kimi back in F1 however this following quote from Kimi worries me...
Quote from rallybuzz.com:

"The final result at the end of the rally doesn't matter to me really: it's all about how much information I can take away for the future. We're just continuing our improvement step by step."


What does he mean about the future? The upcoming rallies this season?...Or next year?...

This sounds very logical if we miss rumors that Kimi has precontract with Red Bull for next year. In that situation Kimi is the key for Webber's future.

...and I still hope Kimi stays in WRC.

I'm so amused sometimes when I read how one day some of you are sure he will return to F1 and the next day you believe that it's certain he stays in WRC :roll::
Don't believe every rumour and don't over-analyze each word he says.
When Kimi says "it's all about how much information I can take away for the future, he really means the future, this can be next season or can be in 3-5years.

Even if I'm one of those who from the end of 2009 is sure he won't come back, I believe this quote doesn't give us more information that we already have.

Look, if he will return in F1 for 2-3 years, be sure he will come back after that to WRC. I don't see him at 35years old retired from any competition. He will compete in some sort of motorsport, most probably rally.

i think your right, he will go back to WRC, but first a couple more years at F1,I dont think he can finish his career with the way he was let go at the end of 09,that man has something to prove,and we will take great pleasure watching him prove his point.
when i know it...........K.Raikkonen

I think that too. IF he will return to F1 for 1-2-3 years, later he can go back to rally. I wouldn't mind it. But at first - as Maria said - he should finish his F1 career in style and not the way 2009 ended. He's much more than that. That's my opinion. :)
