Kimi HAS NOT BEEN EXCLUDED from WRC. IceOne has been excluded from the "manufacturers classifications", period. It doesn't have any consequence on Kimi as a driver, his points stay there, and it won't have any consequence for the following rallies. He can enter them with IceOne and keep scoring points.

If you read what the officials said, there's nothing about Kimi as a driver, it's Mr Evans who made that up. I really don't understand what's wrong with Autosport lately, I used to like and respect them. :<>:

I hear from radio when some FIA member told that there is no problem. IceOne don't get manufactor's points but Kimi will have them as before. He understood well why Kimi didn't travel to Australia. Everyone knows what this mean to Kimi and to IceOne.

Well, Mar told that much better than me.


I want to understand really why he did n`t travel to Australia.. If even FIA understood why then can any1 please tell me the reason? :<>:

Around the rally circles, what people say is that the reason is Red Bull cutting down Kimi's budget.

If rumours are true (well, what Dani Sordo told a Spanish radio at the end of last season), a full season with Citroën as a privateer should be around 5 million $. The 9 European rallies plus Jordan should be around 3 million.

If that's true (I don't really) know, that would mean Australia, Argentina and Mexico cost 2 million $ because of the shipment of the cars and the whole logistic. Australia is the most expensive of the 3, so imagine how extremely expensive that rally is.

And if Red Bull budget doesn't cover that money, Kimi shouldn't put it from his pocket, even if he has the money.


But Now don`t you have to pay the fine?

But the fine is only 26000 € while going to the rally is way over half a million.

PS. Thanks Iceman

The problem is that the damage has already been done. It's all over the internet, in the motorsport webpages of many different countries as "Raikkonen excluded from the WRC". I suppose that's what many people wanted to read, the falling of Kimi, he's so horrible that he's even been excluded from the WRC :roll::

I really don't understand what's the need of all this. And I would think the same thing if they were behaving like that with any other driver.

TS has written an article to explain that Kimi has not lost his points and has not been excluded of the championship, that it's only the manufacturers' points what is gone. I doubt it will have much media coverage.

Hi! Welcome! :wave:

Don't worry too much. The origin of that rumour is a guy who wrote it in a board:
http://www.f1network.net/boards/read/s1 ... 0,12702458

This same guy also wrote that, last week, Sutil was in William's factory for a seat fitting :roll::

Silly season is obviously in full swing now! Don't think Williams could afford his wages or that Raikkonen would rock up back in F1 just to race in the midfield. Unless Williams have something spectacular up their sleeves!
