Räikkönen: I have no plans for next year

Kimi Räikkönen has said that he is yet to finalise plans for the 2011 season following a sudden end to recent rumours that he may be returning to Formula 1 with Renault. Although a continuation in the World Rally Championship is believed to be the most likely option, the 2007 F1 World Champion reiterates that no arrangements are yet in place.

Having departed Ferrari at the end of last year, Räikkönen has spent 2010 rallying for Red Bull’s Citroën Junior Team. However, after claiming to the Finnish press prior to the Japanese Grand Prix that Renault was using his name in a publicity stunt – a statement the team hotly contested - an F1 comeback seems unlikely.


“I don’t have any plans for next year,” he told Fox Sports ahead of this weekend’s French rally. “There’s different options and we will see which is the best, what I feel is the right thing for me, and then we’ll make the decision.”

When asked to explain his goal for the rest of this season’s WRC campaign, which features events in Spain and Great Britain after this weekend, Kimi replied:

“To try and make the best out of all of the rallies; there’s two tarmac rallies, so that should be a bit easier.

"Here in France it’s a new rally for everybody, so it should be a bit better for us because other people don’t have experience from the past here – so hopefully we can improve and get some good results.”

Thanks. But can i just say that maybe this "I have plenty of time to decide" and "there is no rush" attitude that Kimi has displayed all year might actually bite him in the ass in the end? :(

That Renault contract doesnt look too bad at the moment. But I guess thats why Kimi is the Iceman - and I am not.

There’s something interesting in the Spanish part of that interview. Before the interview there is just small talk and bad jokes, but after the interview, the main moderator (the one standing) tells he has been talking with Martín Christie (ex co-driver and sport director of Munchi’s) and has asked him why Kimi goes off so oft.

According to the moderator, Christie says Kimi keeps on tracing the curves à la F1: he opens the trajectory before the curve and then cuts the apex. As a consequence, and since he takes the curves from the outside, if he has the smallest of problems he’s instantly off the road.

I don’t totally agree, because Kimi goes off only at low speed corners and not at high (luckily!). If that were the case, he should also go off at high speed corners too.

PS. The moderators also told they were allowed to make just one question about F1. :lol:

Hey Sleen, I´ll copy You..

The R-word is very likely by now. If it is S-word for next season, it´ll definitevely end up with R-word. And must say I´d be happier with R-word than M-word along with continuening "learnin´ process". And what the heck, if it is the R-word, it´ll end up with BBB-word which should be a very happy thing for K-word

:thumbsup: :lol: :lol: :lol:
