Knowing Kimi I vote for the paparazzi pics :zz:


yeah, im starting to give up that we get the information through nice conventional press-releases :zz: should somebody maybe tell them that the team actually also need a pr-person that puts out nice statement every now and then :lol:

well i guess we know something more before the end of january.

382 pages then. I guess that's it. What were the guesses? Mine was 350 pages.

Just a little break. And then it's time for "Where will Kimi be in 2012?" thread.
Curious case of Kimi Raikkonen..

Speaking at today's Citroen World Rally Team 2011 launch in Paris, team principal Olivier Quesnel also underlined Petter Solberg's commitment to all 13 rounds of the series.

Kimi at Le Mans? I like this idea :D
So it looks like he will go to Australia but miss Sardinia.

Loeb and Raikkonen tipped for Le Mans

24th January 2011
By Giles Wade

Seven-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb has been tipped to return to the Le Mans 24 Hours this year: an event that he has already contested twice, with a best result of second place in 2006.

Loeb came close to a Le Mans seat in 2010 with Peugeot, before deciding to prioritise his World Rally Championship campaign and testing commitments with the new Citroen DS3 WRC.

Now though, with Loeb likely to retire from rallying at the end of 2011 – especially if he wins the title again – the 36-year-old is looking at his racing future for 2012 and beyond.

With the Le Mans 24 Hours scheduled for 11-12 June this year, between the rallies of Argentina and Greece, Loeb would have time to take part in the endurance classic – which is not always possible due to the demands of the WRC calendar.

Former Grand Prix Champion Kimi Raikkonen – who will contest 10 rallies this year in a Citroen DS3 WRC – is also keen to race at Le Mans. Discussions have taken place with Citroen’s sponsor Red Bull about the possibility of running a Peugeot 908 in Red Bull colours at Le Mans; with the two rally stars among the driver line-up.

Raikkonen will only miss the rallies of Mexico, Italy and Argentina this year, although more rounds could be forthcoming if extra budget is secured.
