What I find strange is the timing of these statements from Robertson. Why now? Why to MTV3?

All Finnish tabloids are quoting the MTV3-news except Turun Sanomat.

Iltalehti wrote this one last Thursday:

21.10.2010

Kimi Räikkönen is still pondering about his future

Kimi Räikkönen can not say if his rally career will continue next season.

- Perhaps I have made my decision about the future before the next rally in Wales, Räikkönen said in Spain.


Some hope that there might be some news before that :pray:

Really, stumm :blink:

There was talk about changes in personnel there but I thought that Schumi would bring his own people from Ferrari once their contracts would expire...

Can we start reading into Mark Slade now :lol:

apple wrote:Well, to me its crystal clear. Kimi continues in rally, in which team, they probably know it but wont tell yet.
They also leave the door open to F1, Robertson just sends a message to F1 teams Kimi might be available next year.
I wont go to the route of endless speculations anymore. What happens happens. I am happy if Kimi drives somehere and tell you the thruth, I am curious to see how Kimi plays with his gear stick.. :n :p


Well I hope that when/if Kimi makes a deal it will be for more than just one year! :)
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)

I'll be very surprised if there's contract for more then 1 year, even main drivers have 1 year contracts + there must be big changes in 2011 and 2012
So this thread can be really long :zz: :O

Wolfie wrote:Here is what Steve Robertson said to MTV, I don't know if he is playing with words again or not :lol:

Steve Robertson confirmed to MTV3 that he is negotiating a rally-contract for his protegé for the next season too. The comeback to F1 is a closed option at least when it comes to next season.

- We aren't looking for possibilities in F1 anymore. Kimi seems to be more concentrated on rally at this moment, Robertson told.

Has Kimi turned his back on F1 for good?

- Never say never but at the moment the eye is not on F1, Robertson said.

- Nothing has been decided yet. We will tell when we have something to tell. At the moment nothing has been signed. We are negotiating with several different teams but I can't go more into it, Robertson said.


Sorry guys if someone has already translated this translation Wolfie provided...

- Never say never but at the moment the eye is not on F1 and was it like a minute ago when I told You that Kimi will attend Rally GB, Robertson Told and rushed to call Mr. Kulta..

Smoke screen I say!
