marrie17 wrote: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


Of course you have a lot to contribute, just by writing this and that :hug:

King Räikkönen :shhh:

Nice to see him pick up more points in Rally Turkey! Although I hope he returns to F1 in 2011 he's doing pretty well and it's nice to see him smiling so much :)


@welcome@ :wave:


Thanks. It's great to see all of the articles again, it's my main source of Kimi news :)

If I remember correctly it looked like a post with an agenda ... start off with the positive ( otherwise it's plain obvious ) then say Alonso is doing good against massa ( and here we were totally off with f1 or back to f1 stuff ) , which wasn't necessary

I don't know exactly. Drive out perhaps.

There is no direct translation I guess. "Driving off the road" is perhaps the nearest.

Who remembers Rally Sweden?

I went looking for what the Swedish papers had to say and found an article from Rally Sweden by NWT, a local paper:

CHAOS WHEN KIMI ENTERED THE SCENE

NWT wrestled their way up front and got an exclusive chat with the mega-star


Image

We have seldom seen a chaos like this in the rally-world. When the ex F1-driver Kimi Räikkönen entered the scene in Citroen's press conference in Sweden, the photographers and reporters were going over each other. I got a big tv-camera in my head.

Kimi Räikkönen is a mega-star. Sebastien Loeb was completely in the shadows in Citroen's press conference.

Image

Kimi Räikkönen's co-driver Kaj Lindström calls the hullabaloo around his driver 'crazy' but tells that Kimi feels more and more at home in the more peaceful rally-world than he felt in the F1-circus.

Image

Citroën's media representant was desperately pleading with the media to take many steps back.

– This is completely crazy, Kaj Lindström says.

And he has been a co-driver to Tommi Mäkinen who has won the championship four times in a row.

– Rally Sweden will be much more difficult than Arctic Rally. The surface and the stages are so different. I made quite many mistakes in Arctic Rally. Hopefully I have learned from them. And when it comes down to it a rally car has a steering wheel and four wheels just like a F1-car has.

The hullabaloo around Kimi is enormous and will go on for the whole year. Sebastien Loeb is the best rally driver of all times but still the media hardly noticed him in Citroën's press conference.

– Please. Show some respect and listen, Citroên's media representant pleaded when Loeb started talking.

– I'm forced to be both a co-driver and a bodyguard to Kimi. He has to get some peace at times. It's such an enormous hullabaloo around him all the time, Kaj Lindström says.

”Kimi feels more safer now”

But he thinks he already sees a change in the constantly hunted F1-star.

– Kimi is starting to notice that all people in rally are much more friendlier than those he was surrounded by in F1 are. Here it's almost only about the sport itself and I can see how he likes it and feels more safer.

Kimi stepped into the press conference and looked uninterested and lazy just like he looked like in F1. But at some point Kaj Lindström's words became true. Kimi melted, smiled many times and didn't answer shortly anymore.

The finn is a passionate icehockey-fan. NWT had to ask him:

Did you know that Karlstad has one of Europe's best icehockey-leages?
– Oh yes, I know your leage, Kimi smiles and the interest makes his eyes sparkle.

The pair Räikkönen/Lindström doesn't feel any pressure before the WRC-debut.

– Just remember that Kimi has only had five rallies before this. All the others have had at least 20, Lindström said.

– This reminds me of what it was like when I was young and was going up to another racing class. Rally is going to be an enormous challenge for me and I will learn something new on each kilometer, Kimi said.

In F1 you drive on tarmac. Is it going to be your favourite surface?
– Don't know. I have mostly drove on snow but I dig gravel.

A contender crashed into Kimi during recce on Tuesday.
– It wasn't a biggy. And I knew the bloke but am not going to say who it was.

A countryman?
– Haha! Yes.

After that Kimi puts his hap on his forehead and leaves the chaos while the rest of the drivers stay and mingle in a familiar way with the media.

There is a difference between a star and a mega-star but still we got closer to Kimi than the F1-reporters ever did!
