True but the money made from WCC title will cover all of that and can cover much more like Kimi's salary to his magnums to his vodka to fishing..
I would be only happy if Kimi now becomes a proper citroen driver. End of the day i am only banking on one statement by Quesnell. "We want Kimi Raikkonen". this to me is a great hope.
Only problem is the Quesnell qualifies his statement with ".......if he can bring sponsorship money".
Maybe Kimi can find other sponsors besides Red Bull. I mean, Petter Solberg can manage to find enough sponsors to cobble together a full WRC season so it should be easier for Kimi to find sponsors since he is arguably a bigger star.
Eeeerhm, pls guys do not shoot me. You`re talking about an individual who has said his early years (Sauber-time) that he wanted to be the first one to win the WDC both in F1 and in Rally. Talkin´ about a guy who made a statement when beeing a WDC in F1 "I have always wanted to make a season in WRC".
Now, the man has got his WDC in F1 and has made his season in WRC. Pls remember - I´m fan of him in good and in bad, now and for always. But I know it, he knows it, there is not going to be WDC in WRC for him. It just is not possible. It really is not possible. Every single of us who has been following rally before the time of his knows that.
I myself hate loosing in sports, it really hurts. It sucks to go home when loosing. No matter how good You played, no matter in which sports, it just s.cks..
Monster won´t be the solution, Junior team with Citroen won´t be the solution. Some people just lives with wins. And correct me if I´m wrong..I don´t see Mr. Raikkonen someone who is happy when "joining contest".. Some fans are feeded when he is in and joining the contest. I don´t see Kimi himself happy with that.
So, F1 with RB or Macca it´s gonna be. If not, making baby-boom-booms for the next racing generation.
Did I already ask for it? Pls guys, do not shoot me for my opinions. Am I banned now??
