Omg Nikki, I forgot to tell you guys!!! Last weekend I watched the sport news from MTV3 (I think on Sunday) and saw an interview from Domi. There he commented on Kimi's successful rally-weekend. He said something like "I have been following Kimi's rallying in WRC and I knew he is a driver who is able to get good results from there too. I'm really happy for him."
I tried searching MTV3's website for an article about it but couldn't find anything.... but still, Domi really said nice words about Kimi!
Was he drunk
Yep, sorry havent been here lately I am fighting with other villagers against the person who wants to destroy our beautiful sand ridge and not to mention I dont want to big lorries to drive along the same road my kids go to school with their bicycles. So enormous amount of papers to gather, phonecalls to make to a different kind of officials..
One thing I have learned with this guy, dont ever trust what he says..
and the same goes for Domi too. I dont trust the guy anymore, not after he said"believe the team not the papers".
Boudica very good review to the situation and I agree, Kimi doesnt really have the car to drive next season in rally,competitive anyway, unless he wants to drive in Junior team again. Tommi Mäkinen has probably Subarus new 2000 series cars but thats not sure yet. So it isnt sure Kimi would have a good car next year in rally if Tommi Mäkinen racing gets licence to partisipate. And if they have Subaru 2000. There is a lot of ifs there and thats one thing that makes Kimis desicion difficult if he continues to improve his performance nearer the top drivers. From that point of view I think the summer comes too early.
He has to make the desicion to go back in F1 in summer, Red Bulls option to Webber expires in July.
If Kimi has a good offer from F1 ,a winning car as he says but he doesnt know yet, will he be in a good team in rally and he is not sure he can improve those few seconds , he will choose F1, I am sure of it. He can be there two years, gives the new rally teams time to develop( as Kinga here said earlier) and then tries to go back to rallying, he isnt too old even then.
Or then he might do totally opposite and start a new rally team with Tommi.
