Here is a good reminder of how different the S2000- and WRC-cars are, this is from last year about Kimi's crappy toycar:

Ilta-Sanomat 29.7.2009

A MOPED ON THE HIGHWAY

Even Sebastien Loeb wouldn't have a chance with Kimi's Fiat in Jyskälä

This is Kimi's car:

Image

- Kimi's Fiat has a top speed of 174 km/h, WRC-missiles again about 200 km/h.
- Kimi's Fiat has about 280 horsepowers, WRC-cars almost 100 horsepowers more.
- Kimi has the same tyres as everybody else.
- Kimi's Fiat has a freely breathing engine, it's useless to try and find a turbo-screw for there.

If somebody expects Kimi Räikkönen to chase the top drivers in Jyskälä the waiting is going to be long and useless.

A F1-driver with the experience of three rallys - no matter how talented he is - can't make it against full blooded rally professionals. On top of that Kimi goes to his first race on gravel which on top of that is the most fastest race in the WRC-serie.

But even if Sebastien Loeb would sit behind the steering wheel in Kimi's N-group Fiat Grande Punto S2000 he wouldn't score any championship points.

Mäkinen: No chances

Tommi Mäkinen knows very well with what kind of car Kimi is going to rally with. Tommi Mäkinen Racing has built and set up Kimi's car for Jyskälä.

Mäkinen praises Kimi's driving skills and attitude but reminds that the machinery is limited.

- Mikko Hirvonen or Loeb wouldn't have any chances to make it with this car, Mäkinen says.

- It's no use to even compare Kimi's car with the WRC-machines because they are from a different world, Mäkinen says.

What is the highest possible position Kimi can achieve then?

- Without DNF's and driving out all WRC-cars are ahead of him, after that comes these N-group cars, Mäkinen says.

16 WRC-cars will participate. The tyres are the same for everyone.

- Our men will take care of the maintenance so there's no problems to be expected from that sector. When Kimi and Anton Alén comes to the maintenance they both have 4 men working on their car, Mäkinen tells.

Alén will like Räikkönen drive in the N-group with Fiat Grande Punto S2000. They aren't though completely similar.

- The cars look similar to the eye but Anton's car has a more modern power transmission and a slightly more powerful engine than Kimi has, Mäkinen says.
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

Yes, the hair looks really bad in this one. Didn't they have a hairdresser on set to do some magic...

He's actually not mumbling in the video for once!

Yes, I noticed and I know I should be grateful :$. In the first DNA commercial he looked great with his bare head but with this one I was like "Eeeek put a hap on Kimi!". :lol:

Hi raikkos!!!! :wave: :shhh: Flag:##

I've seen you find some my photos, he-he))

so much I need to say... oh my god! :drool: Rally is absolutely amazing thing!

I made a lot of Kimi's photos, try to show it to you soon.

I said to him that I'm very proud to be his fan for many years, Kimi looked into my eyes and answered "thanks". It was the happiest moment of all my life. Really. :)
