Thanks Wolfie! This part is very interesting.

We already knew this part. :zz:


But if everybody is using the same expression then there has to be some truth in it, right Amol?

Next speculation; how big is Kimi's power of influence? Could he just inform Dieter that 'hey, I'm in next year'?


Yes Wolfie. :n Wassup? :wave:


Thanks, I'm fine, Amol :hug:

And you?

Isn't it funny to wander in the dark when it comes to Kimi's future :lol:

Mark Webber has signed a contract extension with RBR to keep him at the team until 2011.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

Webber to stay at Red Bull in 2011

Mark Webber will stay with Red Bull Racing in 2011 it was announced this morning, after signing a contract extension to keep him at the team for another year at least. The Australian's current deal was due to expire at the end of this season, but today's announcement means the team will keep the same driver line-up for a third consecutive year, with Sebasian Vettel already confirmed for 2011.

Finally, I was sure this info will come out at the begining of the week.
Now, the official statements have to be released and all the speculation will stop.

I have already said this before but i would like to say it again. This means nothing. There would definitely be a performance clause and if Webber fails or there is a lapse in his performance then i am sure he would be sacked. Also i am still feeling that if Red bull loses the WCC title this season signs for webber could not be great.

And i would still maintain. Not all is lost. Its only one door shut for kimi to be back in F1 and that too its not completely shut.

So everyone just Hang On!! Be optimistic

Mark Webber : "We began talking very early this year and were in a position to sign by the Barcelona Grand Prix."


The above part is interesting coz Kimi must have been aware about this since barcelona atleast and if this was the only door open for kimi then Robertson and Kimi wouldnt have made a folly out of themselves by saying that F1 comeback is still a possibility.

Or Perhaps they have their eyes set on 2010.

so i am sure Kimi and his manager are not talking in air when they says lines like "Never say Never" and "Anything is Possible" and i believe they are in talks with other teams or are planning for a comebak in 2012. But one thing is for sure that i can see Kimi coming back to F1.

Can some journo now please ask Kimi and his manager that "Can we see Kimi back in F1 in 2011?"

This would make things clear for us.
