Yep, welcome Kiara :wave: It usually goes like this. Luieluv writes a desciption about the stage which is coming so you know what to wait for. Then as you are about to type the stage starts, somebody else have done it,now all are typing split times and if you are real fast you maybe can write something before the live timing collapses.Ok, lets wait for Kimi to come ..and you are about to write where he is as you notice Claudie has already done it as its her official duty to do it. Well, now you are going to write something like hurrayy he finished as you noticed there is about hundred similar message. all you can do , is to put the wawing flag , its simple and first of all , fast.

This absolutely cracked me up :lol:
Awesome description :cool: :hug:


And accurate too - how many split times do we get each time? About 5 people posting each split like 'Yay, Kimi +1.0 in split 2, Wilson slower' etc. etc.

But it's worth experiencing Kiara, it was so much fun during Japan even though Kimi was already out, I stayed up all night because of the company :shhh:

But a rally isn't a rally without (usually) Kriss starting the thread and putting a lot of information, then a picture-thread, then Luie provides information about the stages and he also gives summaries of each stage with the times and we all have our own function during the rally which makes them absolutely awesome - and Luie ends the rallies with his praisal to Kimi in his Iceman Cometh -thread and then we get Kinga's wonderful video and Apple's story - we are so lucky :hug:

@ Luie, the Vauhdin Maailma came today, it has a looong special exclusive interview with Sébastian Loeb. Could you have time to create a Loeb-thread so I could put it there after translating it? :pray:
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

Yes, following the rally here is much more fun than watch F1 race from TV. (yeah, I am not watched any F1 race since about 2002-2003???)

I would love to but perhaps i would take few hours to be relatively free and can then only create the thread.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

@ Luie, no problem, I will make the thread myself then :hug:

@ Sammy, I read your reply on AS and nearly spilled my coffee - you are great :lol:

If some of you don't read the Turrini-blogs, here is one where Kimi is also mentioned:

Massa's big misunderstanding
Published by Leo Turrini Fri, 17/09/2010 - 11:06

After the pitfalls of Red Bull and McLaren we seem to take for granted one thing: Alonso's chances depend very much on Massa. That is if he can or will get the help from his Brazilian team-mate.

I believe that Felipe's position is tremendously sensitive. He played in five Grand Prix and now he knows his place. Furthermore, there is a misunderstanding behind it. I will try to explain.

1) I was used to Massa Raikkonen. Kimi is not a guy who raises his voice, not the kind of a guy who demands respect in hierarchies and so on.

2) The pair Massa-Raikkonen worked great for two years. The personal title was won by the Blond in 2007 and was again lost by the Brazilian in 2008 but still winning both titles for manufacturers. These are the numbers, you may not like them but you can't argue with numbers.

3) In 2009 we stopped the development of F60 after the Brazilian had a terrible incident in Budapest.

4) Massa did not understand how much his position in the Scuderia would suffer and be downgraded with the arrival of Fernando. When I say and write that Alonso bought Scuderia via Santander I write and say something obvious and not offensive at all (to the touchy bloggers). Excuse me: I'm Spanish, I have two global boards, mega-big sponsors who assure me that I am invited to Maranello because they want someone who is more like Schumacher in his working methods etc and who spends more time in the factory and garage. Who do you choose, the Spanish or the Brazilian? In other words don't pretend to be stupid.

5) Well, Felipe tried to rebel right from the beginning. Remember a year ago when he requested for an explanation from Alonso concerning the Singapore Gate Crash? Massa was sincere but he was forced to change his opinion. Of course he never got any explanation from Alonso.

6) Let's be honest. I think Fernando has always been better than Massa. Even before the incident in Budapest. It's my opinion and open for discussion. Despite my sympathies and antipathies.

7) In Hockenheim the management closed the circle. If Ferrari wouldn't have sacrificed Massa in Germany then hell would break loose in Maranello (see point 4). Once again facts aren't discussed. Could Domenicali and the other members have acted differently? Certainly, in theory. But they didn't do it in practice. Question is why?

8) Felipe's manager is Todt's son and Ferrari's history reached a certain end when Todt left. Today the junior Todt is there to make sure of Felipe's interests in Ferrari. I repeat, his interests. Can you confirm that you have received this message?

9) So, now it's Massa's decision. Does he want to leave? Like Mansell did in 1990 when teamed up with Prost. It takes b*** to escape a barrichello-like end. Will he accept being part of Ferrari for at least another two years, satisfied with a lot of money and partial satisfaction? And serve the Spaniard. Tertium non datur, sorry. Take it or leave it.

10) Have your say now.
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL

Thanks Julia,

Actually Kimi's mechanic man(wearing glasses man) told me in Japan that they would have a test before Rally France.
We happened to meet in an elevator in the hotel at night.

I didn't believe everything he said because he got drunk.
But this rally may be the test he meant.

It seems that he is entered but I had heard nothing about this :blink:. Though I don't know how reliable that site is because I have never seen it before.

I wonder if many websites will be covering this? I can speak French pretty well so it would not be a problem for me to follow it on French sites.
