sometimes I don't know what they want... I'm sure that Adrian wants both titles but I don't know about those who care about drivers politics
and Turkey was really ridiculous

+1 :)
and we know Kimi is excellent but he also can make mistakes :O

anyway we all know that RBR signed Webber very early this year so... :zz:

kimi=great, webber=good

Yes but there's no guarantee that Kimi will have exactly the same amount of luck as Webber when it comes to reliability...... I'm sure we are all very familiar with Kimi's luck when it comes to reliability from past experience........

i am just going by my gut feeling ,kimi to red bull f1 in 2011, i have said it from the start and i will hold my line. i may be wrong,but its just the way i feel.


Maria, I so follow You but...technically I should debate You every single way I can. More debate > more pages. I once said (when You estimated #300) we´ll hit #500 before the announcement takes it´s place :hug:

Kimi said he should be announcing something before Rally GB (unless he's not being truthful again!) so we need to hurry up and produce +200 pages in less than 3 weeks!


I prefer the version he stated us back in January; there´s no rush ´till the season ends ( wooooah, what did I gain..? a day or two. write people write...)

:wave:

That’s telling me there’s something strange going on in RBR, I just don’t know what it is.

really strange situation :huh:
more and more it reminds me about 2007, then there was a conflict in Macca and now in RBR :blink:

500?
Sammy, that’s a lot of writing! In English! That’s a big effort. :(

Nevertheless, it would be nice if something would be known by or little after Rally GB (or Abu Dhabi GP, whatever you prefer).

Kulta seems to trust what Autosprint says. Am I right?

And then there’s something about Dani. Oh! I really don’t know what that translator is trying to tell me. :huh:

I read some interesting rumours about Dani this weekend but I'm not sure if they are true, I posted it in the RallyRACC Spain thread. I don't know if you have heard anything in the Spanish media about those rumours?

Off-Topic: show
In the news there’s almost nothing, only AS says things about Dani’s future are not clear. I'm beginning to think the Red Bull problem was with the Junior team, not with Kimi.
They also say that there was a problem with the set up in Dani's car.
People keep on saying off the record that Citroën “doesn’t help” Dani, but you will never find that written in the articles.


I have not looked the forums since a couple of days (I will do it now and tell you later what I've found :wave: ). Last thing I know is a guy who directly asked, both, Dani and his dad some ten days ago and no one of them would say a word.

The Kimi-part - yes, Kulta quotes Quesnell as Autosprint.
The Dani-part - lower Your salaries and attend part of the rallies in Junior-team
