Renault is in talks with Heidfeld, Glock, Sutil AND WEBBER

and a close source says that the chance he's leaving is very big...

WELCOME KIMI....it is going to happen!!! Jiehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


Premature to say the following but wonder how the Webber-fans would react since most of them have bashed RBR and pleaded with Webber to leave that crappy team - it could be their dream come true :zz:

Wow, if this happens then....


Jaime Alguersuari? :zz: (Not that I want it, I think the boy should have time to develop away from the spot light)

I have a little problem with the Webber to Renault story, though.

Does Renault really want Briatore around their box again? Are they nuts?


Aren't the rumours that Briatore will go to Ferrari in the middle of next season when his ban is lifted? Methinks he would be too busy there to even take a look at Renault, just like he gave a 'massive' support to Kovi when he was in McLaren...

@Spinster, how long do you have to walk? How did you go and promise something like that :blink:

Off-Topic: show
There was this Finnish guy who made a promise on the forum that 'if xxxxxx happens' then I will eat a hat full of s*hit and buy everyone on the forum a bottle of Koskenkorva-vodka. He lost the bet :lol:


it's a neighbour country but it wolu take a few weeks :-)

i promised it here!!! :O :lol:

I don't know Maria but seems like even those never believing in it are starting to wonder :huh:



what took them so long :lol: :lol:
we told them from the beginning :lol:


We are so going to get in the fire if it doesn't happen :fear:

thats ok, i think we can handle it, what matters is we stuck to our guns and didnt change our view.
its just a crazy feeling i had from the start of his adventure with RB, and i just want to see him in a f1 car 1 more time.
just 1 more spa...i know thats selfish , but what can i say...

Okay, how do you read this one, the last things? Quite clear to me...

Canned championship

Turun Sanomat 10.11 2010

Abu Dhabi GP column 10.11.

For the first time a beverage company is celebrating the championship in F1-motorsport. On Sunday evening the energy giant might also crown their season with a WDC.

The WCC will bring lots of money for Red Bull's use after Bernie Ecclestone's companies give out their tv- and -commercial money for this season. Ferrari receives one hundred million extra but other than that Red Bull is first in line when incomes are divided.

Red Bull's economic success does however come from themself. Dietrich Mateschitz will be richer than ever because this year energy drink -cans have been sold more than ever - as much as 4.4 billion cans.

On a flight from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi I got firsthand information about the Swiss brand's news. One can't put that kind of a record sale on the success in F1 but without a doubt a big part of it has become known through that.

It was also confirmed that Mateschitz will go until the end with a Fair Play -Spirit. He says that it's more honorable to win with fair game than with a team order.

It is already known that Christian Horner will not order Sebastian Vettel to let Mark Webber past him in Sunday's race.

They don't need to do that. My reliable source revealed that Red Bull will go through all possible options about what can happen in the race so that both drivers know all the time how to act - without any special order through radio or in the pit wall - in a team-meeting held after Saturday qualification.

Red Bull also won World Rally championships with Sebastien Loeb and Citroen. Thomas Überall manages the brand's rally-matters and he has made a contract with Citroen's factory team in 2011.

But Red Bull is not financing Kimi Räikkönen a car in Citroen's junior team. Kimi gets a personal sponsorship deal - unless he switches to another energy drink -label, which would end his long-term cooperation with Red Bull altogether.

Feels bad. In this case i see that the negotiations between kimi-red bull may have come to end as far as citroen junior is concerned.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

And with that in mind I see RB's comments as maybe them worrying a bit. They don't pay much for all the PR he brings them. They wouldn't want to loose that goldmine to the competition! There might be a behind the scenes bidding war over Kimi's services....

+2 on Spa!

So did I get it right? RB will contiue to sponsor Kimi but not if he continues to drive with Citroen Junior or Ford Monster? :huh:
Why do they suddenly don´t want to continue with him AND citroen junior???

@Kinga: Yeah at the beginning I also thought that it´s for sure that Kimi will drive with RB (F1) next year! BUt then they signed with Webbo so I thought that the chances are gone!
Well now I belive in it again because of all of you!

But as I said: I dunno whether I want it to happen! :huh:
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)

It is very complicated for me ''hmm''
Kimi gets personal spomsorship from Red Bull but "RB not financing Kimi Räikkönen a car in Citroen's junior team" :huh:
Does it mean that they are not giving him the same amount of money than this year?

but maybe some other sponsors give him the money to stay in citroën junior...that might be also possible because it really takes very long!

BUT as you all know for me it's a sign that Kimi is in F1 RBR...

Damn some of you going to shoot me if that doesn't happen :lol:

Why not? It'll be an anniversary rally, many cool drivers are going there, so it's excellent opportunity for training before season starts.

Red Bull is his main sponsor afterall :)
