Räikkönen will miss Rally New Zealand
Kimi Räikkönen drove a steady race with patience in Rally Turkey which brought him a fifth place finish. It's the best achievement in Räikkönen's short rally career.

The car stalled a couple of times but the Citroen junior team driver avoided big problems on roads that were fast and at times slippery and in bad shape.

The finishing position was also made better by Dani Sordo driving off the road and Jari-Matti Latvala's problems.

-Driving to into the top five in a WRC rally with that rally experience is a great achievement from Kimi. I don't think that you can find other performances like that, said Latvala.

Räikkönen was also pleased.

-The last stretch was really difficult. Some places were as slippery as ice. I drove safely so that I wouldn't make a mistake in the end of such a good race, thought Räikkönen.

-Now I'm starting to get the feel for the car and for driving to pace notes.

Räikkönen is now facing a short brake in racing. He'll be back in the WRC series only at the end of May in Rally Portugal. He'll miss Rally New Zealand which is driven in the beginning of May.

-But I'm supposed to be driving tests in between, told Räikkönen.

Hi guys! i'm new here and i have been wondering where have the kimi bunch gone to this time around...i posted a question on the last thread and somebody gave me the link to this site. so, i'm very sorry if that has caused the access for some antikimis or trolls to this forum.i didn't mean to do that. i have been a kimi fan since 2006 and kimi immediately got my attention the firdt time i saw him on the tv. i'm just the typical female fan of kimi. lurking around various forums and sites about kimi have been the source of news about him and my usual everyday "kimi therapy". maybe just like many other ''have been'' lurking kimi fans. i got nervous the second time the kimi bunch have gone somewhere else again, so i'm glad i finally got here. i've always loved the happy atmosphere amongst you guys, the passionate spirit, and the witty chats. i dont think i can contribute any worthy materials here, so i wont be posting much, just wanna read through. so i guess people can already find out the reason why i registered here.
btw; it's almost unbelievable that for a rally rookie, kimi has scored wrc points two times in a row in just 4 rallies! i believe there will be much more coming from him this year! Cheers to the king Raikkonen!! :shhh:

p/s: pardon for my amateur english

Thanks for the translation Dracaena :thumbsup:

Shame Kimi won't be travelling to New Zealand, it'll be a long wait for Rally Portugal.

A translating question for the Finns. How would you translate "ulosajo", is there a simple word for it? (Feel like an idiot asking this :blush:).

Kimi just said in the MTV3 rally recap that there was a possibility of him going to New Zealand but that one has to take a vacation at some point also. He was smiling when he said that so it might very well have been a joke (the part about him deciding to take a vacation instead). I think that him going was probably discussed at some point in the team but they decided against it.

Raikkonen stars on Rally of Turkey with top result

Sebastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia, the leaders for 12 of the Rally of Turkey's 23 special stages, have finished in fourth overall at the end of the event. Kimi Raikkonen and Kaj Lindstrom are fifth, their best-ever result with the C4 WRC. The Citroen Junior Team becomes the outfit to score the most points at the end of round four of the FIA World Rally Championship.

The third day of the Rally of Turkey was shortened by two special stages this morning. Deniz 1 and Mudarli 1 were made impassable by heavy overnight rain and were cancelled by the event organisers. The competition resumed in Ballica (SS20). Sebastien Ogier, who was deprived of the opportunity to fight for a win by a tyre that exploded when he was leading yesterday, was third-fastest, less than a second behind Sebastien Loeb: "Unfortunately there's not so much left for us to fight for," he said. "Things are a bit different for us today. We're going to continue at a good pace because it's always useful to rack up the kilometres in order to gain more experience. But it's clear that the motivation is not the same."

After setting a final fastest time at the end of the rally, Sebastien finished fourth: "Generally I'm quite pleased. It's almost perfect! We've been able to fight at the front for a large part of the event. We're definitely on the right road. The car was perfect and the team has done a great job. Now I'm really looking forward to getting to New Zealand."

Kimi Raikkonen also continued making progress to finish fifth, his best result in world rallying. "I feel more and more confident with the Citroen C4 WRC," he said. "I'm very happy with the pace that we are able to maintain without taking any risks. We are able to get closer now to the drivers who are in front of us, which is our key objective. The hard work we have done with the team is now paying off. I'm feeling more and more confident. We've got a few weeks now before our next rally but our goal remains unchanged: we will have to continue to improve."

Thanks to the reliability of its two Citroen C4 WRCs and its crews, the Citroen Junior Team became the team that scored the most World Championship manufacturer points in Turkey, with a total of 27. The Citroen Junior Team reinforced its third position in the standings, behind two factory teams, after four rounds of the World Rally Championship.

"We've been through a rally with plenty of twists and turns," concluded Benoit Nogier, the Citroen Junior Team manager. "Some of those things went our way, but we also had a stroke of bad luck with Sebastien's puncture yesterday. This takes nothing away from his excellent performance. The cars had no problems at all. Our Citroen C4 WRCs are reliable and our drivers have proved that they are extremely competitive. Kimi has driven his best rally since the start of the season. It wasn't only a rally of attrition; he got past some of his rivals on pure pace and that is the proof that he is making progress. It's very encouraging for the entire team. We now head to New Zealand with Sebastien Ogier, highly- motivated to score another good
