Since Kimis rally was so short anyway, I thought I could fill it with an analysis of this instead. Feel free to agree or disagree with the points made ;)

Pretty good analysis :thumbsup:


All the points are covered! Good Job Soren as always! :thumbsup:

Good post Soren :shhh: :thumbsup:

Wonder where they got these quotes from? Doubt that they did interview this weekend or so

Kimi: Sebastien is harder to beat than Sebastian
http://www.maxrally.com/news/entry/kimi ... sebastian/

According to privateer Citroen driver (and former Grand Prix title-holder) Kimi Raikkonen, it’s harder to beat Sebastien Loeb than newly-crowned two-time Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel.

On paper, Loeb looks like he’s got the edge, with seven titles to Vettel’s mere two, but according to Raikkonen, there’s a lot more to it than that.

“In rally the cars are closer,” said the 2007 Formula One champion, now in his second year of rallying. “It’s not so much different whether you have a Citroen, a Ford or a Mini. In F1 you can have three seconds between two cars; and however good you are you are you will never get that difference back just by driving. So if you are in the best car, you’re much more likely to win.”

So according to Raikkonen, rallying is more of a meritocracy when it comes to driver talent. He knows he can’t beat Loeb through bitter experience, but could he beat Vettel?

“I think Sebastien Loeb could go just as fast in my car as in his own car,” said the Finn. “But if you’re not in the same car in F1 you never know, because the car makes such a difference. And Vettel’s car is certainly good. So it’s hard to answer the question. Although I have beaten Vettel in the past but not Loeb…”
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)

I was wondering the same. The conversation seems pretty recent. ''hmm''

The author is Anthony Peacock, I suppose that if he calls, Kimi gets on the phone. Not so sure what would happen if the one phoning were Evans :p

Who is this Anthony Peacock? Evans is the guy who writes the articles about rally at AS, isn´t he?

His name might be familiar from Red bull WRC previews and reviews

Ah okay! I usually don´t look at the author when I read an article :blush:

Hey Mar, do you know whether Kimi will test this week at Spain?
