Contrary to the F1, in the WRC tests are allowed during the season. What very few people know is that, during those tests, when the teams run up and down the same road section, Kimi has comfortably been faster than his team mates... and among them are Sébastien Loeb and Sébastien Ogier, the two fastest drivers in the WRC

I feel like you Mar :hug: :thumbsup:

I have a little hope left, but Kimi has shown for me his potential as rally driver.

Same here but.......I want Kimi at least another year in WRC :blush:

Me too and next year TV visibility is much better than this year. Someone should talk to Todd that he should turn Kimi's head to continue driving in WRC.

Who's the source then? The Japanese driver who crashed into the SC?
There are various stories knocking around today about possible driver signings for Formula 1 in 2012. Opportunities are already few and far between with the major players already signed up. At the moment we have Red Bull Racing (Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber), McLaren (Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button), Ferrari (Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa) and Mercedes (Nico Rosberg, Michael Schumacher) all settled. Sauber has confirmed Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi and Team Lotus has announced Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli. It seems that Force India will soon announce Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg and the latest rumours (not well-sourced, but logical) suggest that Kimi Raikkonen may have signed to race for Williams, alongside Pastor Maldonado.

I have the first column ready.

Can we get into trouble if I post it here? Should it go to any section where only users can read it? :huh:
