Without Solberg's crash in Rally Portugal it would had been first 4 spots all Citroen. And the 5th Citroen was 10th. Even Kimi's review was most about explaining why he was struggling in the rally.

I think it would be tough for Kimi to hang on to this seat for next year.

Maybe 1 year PA of a famous F1 champ in the team is probably enough for the team.

He maybe getting more testing runs, but I think those will not be enough.

Mark Webber's future at Red Bull safe despite fallout from Sebastian Vettel crash


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/motorsport/formulaone/redbull/7794875/Mark-Webbers-future-at-Red-Bull-safe-despite-fallout-from-Sebastian-Vettel-crash.html


"Mark Webber’s comments in the wake of Sunday’s Turkish Grand Prix will not affect his future at Red Bull, with the Milton Keynes-based team set to confirm that the Australian has signed a new contract prior to the race in Montreal next week."

"...it is understood that Webber has cleared the air with Red Bull’s management and will stay beyond the current season."

Well, I'm not certain, but I do think it's one of the more respected broadsheet newspapers in the UK.

@Kinga The Telegraph is definitely not a trashy tabloid paper in UK.

Claudie_Schnaudie wrote:Well for me it´s crystal clear that he won´t be at RB next year. BTW wasn´t it TS and Heikki Kulta who always claimed that it´s up to Kimi whether he wants to have the F1 RB seat next year? It seems that he has changed his mind and was wrong. :roll::


That's how I feel too, Claudie.

Unfortunately I've given up all hope of seeing Kimi in F1 next year. It couldn't have been any clearer for me when Christian Horner said that they never considered Kimi for the Red Bull seat. I don't think I need to parse his words any more.

Montezemelo also said, "Alonso will never drive a red car for us." I don't trust ANY team principle as far as I can throw him.... Kimi said he has not made up his mind. THAT I trust. I fully believe there is an option with RBF1 but also with RB to continue funding his time in WRC. DM has a crush on Kimi so I don't think he will willingly let him go no matter where he decides to race. Horner and Marko are just PR puppets. Horner is turning into Ron Dennis Jr to me.
It's just a FORUM!!!
