wolfie,

I so wish thatyour gut was right, but it just seems like it is not gonna go the way of F1 right now...my days have become dark again... ::oops:; I dearly wish I would be more interested in WRC :fear:


Brenda, don't worry :hug:

WRC is changing a lot next year and we don't know at all how it's going to be covered, you have been there with us even though rally isn't a sport you just fall in love with like that, you have had one year to get used to the idea and can take it slowly from there :cool:

But he can do almost anything so I'm not sure if both rko281 and I have to have new signatures for one month :lol:

Hey Wolfie, since ski is not on Kimi's agenda, can it be that he is going 'NHL'? :D

I definitely won't have a new signature as my conviction all along has been that he won't go back to F1. I think that in case he won't do a full season in WRC, he'll do few rallies + some races in another form of motorsport.
Wolfie, I'll wait anyway for the official announcement, but it's just a formality, our bet is won by me :cool:

Very possible, Denorth ''hmm''

Kimi wants to start from the top after working his way up there so NHL would be natural... Shame though that crosscountry skiing is out of the picture, it's so thrilling and exciting :lol:

I'm a RedWings fan. We can trade Modano to Citroen for Kimi any time! I'll email Ken Holland and see what I can do..... As a perk Kimi can drive the zamboni (Red Bull sponsored of course) between periods. Fastest ice scrapper in North America!

Wow, who saw this one coming :shock:

Kimi Räikkönen is going to start his own team in motocross WC-serie, Vauhdin Maailma tells. Räikkönen gets help from 7-time world champion Kari Tiainen among others.

- I have been helping in this matter so much that I asked the International Motorsporting Federation if there would be room for a new team like this in the WC-serie at once. The reply was quick and straightforward: no problems, it can be arranged. It would be a project that would be very seriously taken. Why wouldn't it happen? There are tough professionals involved in this starting from Kari Tiainen, Kurt Ljungqvist from Motorsport Federation confirms in Vauhdin Maailma.

Kimi's intention is to have two Finnish drivers; one in MX1- and the other in MX2-serie. The budget for two bikes in one year would be about half a million euros in the first season.

According to Riku Kuvaja starting a new cross-team is everything but certain.

- It's all still in the beginning. They have asked us if we are interested and there has been some talk about it but nothing concrete has yet happened, Kuvaja told Iltalehti on the phone.

Seems like even Marc Van Dalen (Kronos team boss) is not even aware that Kimi is going to be taking part in the Monte Carlo rally so I guess that is out of the window

The article also says that the organizers can only accept 100 teams for the Monte Carlo rally and they have already received 160.

In fact, we approached Steve Robertson, manager of Raikkonen in 2008 because we had the idea of rolling rally before signing with Citroën. But since we no longer had any contact. I do not know of Where did this rumor ... " (SH)

yeah Monte seems out of the window...

and after reading this article it sounds that citroen is boycotting monte as long as it is in IRC. When i read that i remember that even if Ogier did some stints in IRC in the spring he stated in the summer that he is not going to drive in IRC anymore because Quesnel wants him to only represent Citroen. ... so probably no citroen driver in monte.

If he wants to manage a motocross team is ok for me, but I really hope he doesn’t consider competing, I’m terribly scared of motorbikes. :fear:

I have been taking a look to the news in Spanish about Kimi staying in Citroën and going to Monte Carlo. No source is named anywhere, so I really don't know where all those rumours have started.
