well he also said for a long time he would be driving for the f-team in 2010 cause he had a contract, and he knew they were going to replace him, so i love him to death,but i will believe it when hes making the official announcement .
when i know it...........K.Raikkonen

Disbelief was my first reaction :blink:

But I accept 100% an official announcement and rko281 gets to pick a signature for me that I have to keep for a month - that's going to be fun :lol:
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

From what I recall last year, every time he was asked whether he would be driving for the f-team in 2010, he would only reply that he had a contract.

Wait, so this is it? We've been waiting for months for a statement whether it's F1 or WRC and this is it now? Wow :blink:

Just for the heck of it..

Why would kimi even utter a word of showing interest in F1 now when the F1 team who sponsors him is at a very crucial juncture in a finale.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

yes thats what he said, then when asked this year when did he know about his replacement he said in the summer, so all that time he was still saying he had a contact with the f-team, he didnt lie, but i fell for it, i thought he would be driving f1 in 2010.

I know he's been saying it or at least implying that it's going to be WRC and I never took F1 for real but... I don't know, I somehow expected something... well, different from that short statement which is like "oh yeah and by the way, no F1 next year!" ''hmm''
I'm somehow used to big headlines when Kimi is concerned, so I'm actually kinda suprised :lol:

I guess we will surely know how much of a weight does this comment of kimi carries. There would be plenty of reportes asking him the same thing over a period of this rally.

Lets wait patiently for his replies.

RB putting the heat on him a bit? "Step it up and don't wrap it around a tree and we will talk."
It's just a FORUM!!!

thats MTV3:s interpretation of Kimis words in the Pirelli Blogg, but obviusly a good result makes it easier to negotiate...
