yeah and i feel its coz citroen have yet to name their junior team. And i feel Kimi / Petter factor is looming large for them to name their junior team.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

nothing new, but last comment by Kimi is important :)
this was surely old comment, but I'm with Kimi and trust he will race this year...
but obviously, spending hard time. hope to hear from him soon.

WRC Season Review 2010

Tricky season, but great fun

Well, the rally season 2010 is over. It's was a tough year. Trying to learn the WRC car and eleven completely new rallies during the season was a huge challenge for a rookie like me. But it was a great fun, too.

I liked the new experience very much, indeed. It was as difficult as we could expect, but I have all but negative feelings going through it.

It was a season full of ups and downs. There were some good times, there were some bad times. But that's how it usually goes in the world of motor sports. Obviously, there were some people expecting us to make miracles after a couple of first rallies. But, in the end of the day, there was no reason to wait for more from this rookie season of mine.

We finished the last rally in Wales. It feels good every time you finish a race. The Rally of Britain was a truly challenging one. We've got storm, rain, ice-slippery roads, no sight ahead from time to time. It was an adventure and to finish it with some points was a nice finish for this WRC season.

It was also the end of an era for the these WRC cars. They are really great cars and it was a privilege to have a season with them, too.

Obviously, the season offered many different kind of rally roads. The tarmac doesn't mean tarmac like it is in Formula One. It's only semi-tarmac every time, while there is so much gravel and dirt on the road. Coming in as from circuit racing the only real asfalts were those short show stages in the cities.

The Red Bull Citroen WRC team keeps winning the championships. They are true professionals in and out. You have to give the highest note for them every time for their effort.

For the next year we continue talking to people. When we have something signed and sealed, we tell you. Thank you all fans for the support."

yeah, and we are not going to see him on any entry lists before there has been a announcement... so we just have to wait till the announcement and when the announcement comes , and if its rally, we will hear if they have fixed the rally sweden entry or is he just going to start his season with the next rally...

I mean we have to remember the circumstances, its not even tree weeks since Kimis father died and somebody said that in Finland it can take up to four weeks till the funeral.... give him little more time. And I atleast take it as a positive hint what the fanmail had sent tha same day as rally sweden dl.

Kulta believed he was going to drive in sweden and that the announcement is gong to be in the middle of january. And the first official list FIA is publicing for rally sweden is gong to be the 20.1 every list before that is unofficially.


we just have to wait alittle more time and ...... :O
