I got the feeling Kimi´s decision will be announced soon. I´d say today.
Servus TV-> Austria-> Red Bull->Austria->Kimi

smells like Wrc contract, wouldn´t be that happy, I prefer being clueless instead. Don´t get me wrong like being here but F1 is my castle and I hope if Kimi comes back to F1, we still will be here in contact :)
GOODBYE KIMI

It becomes more and more obvious to me that the F1 environment is a flesh eating arena.....
Look how they treated Kimi, how they critisize MS this year and how they even started against FA, they were licking their shoes just yesterday......So, it is better for a driver to take as much as he can and run, since they will bash him anyway...from this point of view Kimi will do the right thing to stay in rally. He made enough money, now he can enjoy it....

hehe the owner of this channel is didi mateschitz...but I don´t think that he´ll announce anything today. I suppose that he is just a guest because of the Erzbergrodeo event!
But I´d like him to announce something :)
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)

I wouldn´t say so and Kimi too, in every sport there are bastards and angels and citroen isn´t the opposite of ferrari. they are quite similiar.
It´s a tough sport, yes, but at some level you have to deal with it. Nascar seems to be more open but the journos can also be very harsh...
oh , I miss my montoya also a bit ...

Oh, if Bernie could walk just away..
He´s the one who made out of F1 a circus.
He even once said: "We don´t act just like the mafia, we are the mafia!" :roll::
Found an article about it yesterday in my magazine collection :)

You bet we are....
But since I personally tend to be optimistic and since your story left me in a very nice place with great colors I expect all to turn out just fine....

Another reason why I say that his F1 time is over is that I think that RB might have asked Kimi whether he even wants to return...remember all the rumours at the beginning of the season. Kimi might have already told him that he wants to stay at Rally. :) I for myself think that he already made up his mind long time ago. :)

As to why Kimi keeps saying that he might return...well dunno why maybe he want to tease us :lol: Remember 2006 ... he doesn´t always tell the truth. :)


well this part i am not sure because i read this ... https://twitter.com/adamcooperf1/status/15618003544

and i know it wasnt being pessimistic :D



Hmm yeah because Kimi told him that he doesn´t know what will happen next year at a party during the monaco gp...but even if he knew at this time he wouldn´t tell it to a journalist :p


well he didnt even put a pic of kimi at the monaco gp ... he did post pictures of others and things not f1 that weekend . but nothing related to kimi . so i think the chat was strictly casual .

but he would know ... otherwise he isnt a competent reporter :D

I also believe that he will come out just fine :)

Since this is speculation and nobody has the absolute answer it would be respectful to let people speculate instead of cutting them short by telling how things are :)

Personally I love these speculations, reading all different angles so hopefully this thread keeps on going strong!!
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

I like this :) It would have been great for Kimi to be in RB next year in terms of being in a top car fighting for the title straight away (probably) but by being in Merc he would take the pressure off himself a little. Sure, it might not be the championship winning car he would be looking for straight away, but doing well in a slightly sucky car would do his already awesome reputation no harm and then go on to drive for RB in 2012.

However, if he went to RB straight off, I don't think the journos and commentators will allow for him to maybe be a little rusty (like with Schumi) Let him get back into the groove with Merc and then go for the title with RB.
