I have an interview here where Malcolm Wilson and Olivier Quesnel are talking about Kimi's future in the WRC (I think it's from Spain)
The only problem is that I don't have a youtube account so I'm hoping someone here
would be nice enough to upload it to their account so that we can share with everyone else here?
wow. Thanks a lot. Wilson and Quesnel both considering Kimi for next year. The comment where Quesnel says that he thinks that kimi will be in rally next year gives me impression that kimi and robertson must be doing all the hard work now to rope in as many sponsors as possible and if not then i feel kimi is willing to pay up for the seat. Only if Wilson has other plans to offer kimi a better lucrative offer.
Quesnel made a very valid point that kimi will have to give three year frame time to succeed in rally. And if he decides to not continue in rally anymore than not even kimi would know that whether or not kimi could have succeeded in this sport .
So those who felt that kimi can gauge if he can be successful or not from this year's experience are so very wrong.
Having said that I now also feel that Red Bull are not winning the title this year and so are Mclaren and Mercedes. And we never know what can happen in future. The look on Horner and newey's face after mark crashed out was of a person whose all the efforts are washed in within a second. Webber to me has binned the title. And a one two for Red Bull in last two races also cant guarantee vettel a title.
Mclaren on the other hand have not done anything wrong as such but Lewis has not been up to the mark and jenson is too slow in the 2nd half of the season. as a mclaren fan i have waited for more than a decade now for a constructors title. And it was very much possible this season. I so wished kimi could have been a part of this team.
For mercedes i have to say they can continue with schumi for all they want but he wont successful next year too.
The choice lies for the top teams. Knowing that kimi is available they have to play it safe and smart.
