It's nice that Citroen boss still wants that Kimi will drive in his team also next year. Kimi must make his own decision soon.

Many thanks Moominpappa! :thumbsup:

It sounded a bit like the Citroen boss was annoyed that Kimi was taking so long to decide. Maybe I read it the wrong way? :confused:

according to the MTV3 article it sounds like it has to be Kimi's decision :huh:
that Red Bull PR person said yesterday that Kimi has a couple of offers from F1 and rally and Kimi has to choose
Kimi said earlier that if it was up to him he would already signed a contract :huh:

before somebody draws wrong conlusions (maybe?): Peacock isn't RB:s official spokesperson, he is a person RB have hired to do a lot off kimis PR-aktivites for them (pressreleases, articles, talk nicely about Kimi when Kimi himself isn't in the mood to talk to the rallyradio :O )

and he also said that there are also much things outside Kimis controll which decide his future its not just in Kimis hands...

How did I miss that? Thanks, Verena and Kriss. Is Anthony Peacock Red Bull PR person or Kimi's PR person? If he is Red Bull guy, he really talks very nicely of Kimi. I wonder what two F1 deals he knows about! :p WRC deals too. I have to say these rally radio guys understand Kimi very well. They go very easy on him, and rate him and speak of him very highly. I love them.

EDIT: Just saw Julia explaining who Peacock is? (What a nice last name! :p ) Still good because he is appointed by Red Bull. Suggests that Kimi is still favoured by the one man who matters, Mateschitz.

Its the same thing about what we heard on Rally radio but still a translation would help.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

I translated just the quotes from Benoit Nogier :
"Until now there is no contract for the next season between Kimi and us, he showed a certain satisfaction about what he is doing and also a desire to continue. Right now he is in charge of his own destiny and he is the one who needs to tell us if he wants to continue with us next year. We will be very happy if he decides to continue with us."

According to Nogier it's not so urgent for Kimi to make a decision: "There is no deadline. It's still early in the season to talk about this. It's true that as days go by, when we get at that point he will have to make a decision".

Thanks. I feel this gives us a very clear picture that Kimi to citroen can still happen. Red Bull may not want to sponsor kimi's seat and pay 8 to 10 millions to him. But I feel citroen would welcome kimi even if he wants to drive. The only problem is that kimi will have to take a huge dip in his income. I am sure if he can generate couple of millions from his personal sponsors, he can get a drive at citroen.

Maybe Citroen is offering Kimi rotten peanuts to drive next season, But Kimi, without RB money, thinks he deserves a lot better.
Maybe thats the only reason why he is even remotely considering F1.

it's the same artile

Citroen waiting for Raikkonen's F1 decision

Citroen is waiting for Kimi Raikkonen to decide whether to stay with the French marque in the world rally championship next year.

The Finn is reportedly considering returning to Formula One in 2011 with Renault, while some insiders believe he is much more likely to stay at least another season in his new discipline.

Benoit Nogier, team manager at the Citroen Junior Team, said the door is open for the 30-year-old.

"At the moment there is no commitment from Kimi for next year," he told French radio RMC.

"Up to now he has showed appreciation for what he is doing and the desire to continue.

"He is the master of his destiny so it's up to him to tell us if he wants to be with us next year or not. I will be very happy to welcome him if he wants to continue," added Nogier.

He said there is no great rush for Raikkonen to decide.

"We're not talking about a deadline because it's too early. As the days go by you eventually reach the time to make a decision," he explained.

If Kimi wants the winner car, Citroen seems to be the best choice. I don't think that Kimi compare salaries between F1 and WRC.
