I thought Kimi has said that he hoped he would have taken the decision by the end of the season.
As a matter of fact, the last rally is the same weekend as the Abu Dhabi race. ''hmm''

Did Kulta have a little “lapsus lingue” there? :zz:
What was he thinking about? :n


:lol:

Imagine if there is a huge bomb waiting, a bomb that can be released only after the season is over (RBR :pray: )


I really don’t believe in it, but maybe you should go to the silly-season thread and take a look to something I have posted a couple of hours ago. :O


I just have to go and look.... and yes its about Marks retirement.... and the little chance that if he wins the title this year he could call it a day already this year... and RB would actually manage to lure Kimi back to F1. I have to say that this is my strongest guess for the there is a very,very small change that he goes back,never say never in F1, 1% change. :lol: And it seems to be Kultas favorite also :lol:

As time goes by reality

Destroys your hope and dignity

There's nothing left but shadows on the wall

But just remember who you are

And where youve been youve come so far

And never ever let them see you fall

GOODBYE KIMI
GOODBYE RÄIKKÖNEN

I mean that Kimi has not made sponsor agreement with DNA for money.

That's what I thought too. He is probably paying them back for some of the help they did in his early career?

u r too cute Maria, Steve already said kimi won't be caught dead in Nascar ... I still think he will be in rally cos the way kimi talked in the interview - no mention of F1 and only talks about rally... and that he must make his decision quickly now...

Does anybody know if Ekström is going to continue in DTM next season?
Because it may very well be Eki who’s going to Nascar with Red Bull support.

“I repeat: we are building the team around Sebastian,” team boss Christian Horner is quoted by Auto Bild.

“Sebastian has a long career ahead of him and hopefully he will spend it with us,” said the Briton. “Mark is in the autumn of his career.
“He wants to retire while he’s at the top, not when he’s past his peak like some other drivers,” added Horner.


would Kimi go to a team to be No.2? or Horner just wants to keep Seb?

the question is, what if webber misses the mark? And say, alonso wins it? This autumn (mark) and spring (seb) nonsense from horner doesn't say anything about kimi which I'd hoped it would :blink:

also, this statement horner made clearly shows they do not care for webber winning the wdc and personally, I take it that mark is indeed the second driver...I wonder if this would be the case if kimi is driving for RB next year. Unless kimi can show them he is "better" despite the favoritism... :( everything is really not looking too good for kimi, IMHO
