Thanks Claudie :hug:

Manager confirms to MTV3: Kimi's career will continue

Räikkönen got some sad news during Christmas when his Matti-dad suddenly died after an illness-attack. According to rumours Kimi put all negotiations in ice and even started to consider stopping his career.

- There has been a lot of talk about it and of course he is sad over his father passing away which is normal. Yet talks about him keeping a break are pure speculation, Robertson told.

Robertson told that he is still negotiating with several quarters. According to some rumours the deal with Citroen might be announced soon.

- I'm pretty sure that Kimi is still in motorsporting, Robertson assured.

The manager didn't want to comment if Räikkönen could possibly drive in some other serie than WRC.

- Kimi is a WDC in F1 so of course Kimi has had other options too. However at this moment we don't have anything to announce, Robertson emphasised.

There might be some news concerning Räikkönen's future to be expected soon.

- We are now in January so I don't think it takes much longer anymore, Robertson promised.

it depends ... even if its the dl to register themself it doesnt mean they make any lists public on tuesday... checked last year and FIA had published the constructor entry list the 20.1 (the rally was the same weekend)... ok i remember also that rally sweden organizers where hyping kimis name 15 minutes after they got his registration last year but ...

yeah i was also thinking about block monster comment about midddle of january and usually when you have pressconferencees you have some changes to inform about not just that you continue one more year with the same guys but I dont know...

I agree otherwise with you but in kimi's case its only sensible for him to held a press con so that he can disclose his plans once and for all even if its for continuing in WRC.
