Räikkönen admits: I've seen F1!

- I don't think I'll go back to F1. I would have had the chance to go there but I think that career is already seen, Räikkönen told MTV3 in Germanly.

Räikkönen does not confirm that he continues in WRC either. The current deal with Citroen is only for this season.

- I have different options for next year. Let's see if I drive anything. I guess we will come up with something. We tell when we know more, Räikkönen promised.

I don't know if those were his words or not, but I DO KNOW one thing, his F1 career was over when he choosed WRC last year. It was so obvious.... he got what he wanted from F1 (a world championship and driving for the best 2 teams for many years). He is 31 in a few months, time to move on to another challenge.

P.S. He seems the kind of guy that never looks back ... That's why I've been saying for months that he's not going back to F1.

I have to say that I second that. Last year he already choosed to rally with redbull and citroen instead of drive in f1 whit Mclaren... he did the big choise already then Ok he left a small door opend for return but I always got the feeling that it was the plan b if he would be lousy at rally...

I actually thought from the beginning that he was going to turn his back to F1 after 2010 year in ferrari... he just did it one year earlier. He has many times said that he want new challenges and as rko281 said he has nothing to proove anymore... he has the titel.

Wolfie, out gut-feelings are completely different :lol:. Mine is that he won't come back.

P.S. When he announced in Suzuka 2009 that he and Ferrari are over, I said he will go to rally instead of signing with Mclaren and bye, bye F1 :)

Oi :blink:

Are we going to start fighting over who has the better gut-feeling :lol:

Last year in spring I had this text in my signature: KIMI TO WRC IN 2010

So my gut-feeling must also count for something :p

But why would he close the door like that? :confused:
Lets say that he gets his fill of rally after next year - it could happen. Then F1 would be there - and he says he loves driving there if not for all the media. But that is getting almost as bad in rally now too.

Lets face it. Kimi is 7 kinds of awesome in an F1 car. And I crave for at least one or two more seasons. Howl! ::oops:;

I don't know what it means, Sören :blink:

Then again it's MTV3 and Kimi is sure not going to tell them what he does next year.

Let's just hope that he is fed up with the questions and feeds them this and that :lol:

I think Kimi himself was fed up with all these F1 return questions, and he just decided to give all of us a major hint. Sadly enough I think its true.
