probably with the same result :confused:

Hopefully :wave:

Kimi has improved very fast and I (as like Kaj) want to see how good he could be as rally driver.

I want it too. I'm not so thrilled of his possible return.
I mean......i will be happy if he returns he can always achieve very good results and a little of personal satisfaction.

But i prefer him in WRC with a full season,not like this year. And I hope he will stay........ I don't understand why he wants to come back NOW with Williams when he could come back with McLaren or with the Red Bull. :confused:

He can't go back to F1 with McLaren or Red Bull, they already have their drivers, and they prefer them to Kimi. They even have drivers they are keeping in other teams in case they need them (di Resta, the Toro Rosso boys).

Sammy says MTV3 has told there is the rumour that Kimi is also talking to Toro Rosso.

And I think Iltalehti says Kimi has admitted today that WRC is one of the options for next season. (I think because you guys know how google translator is, he could have said the opposite):

We will have to ask Sammy what they really said.

It could also be something MTV3 has invented to keep the people interested.

Really, this story is getting too silly :roll::

It looks more and more like McLaren 2009 except for a little difference: McLaren is McLaren, and Williams did today their worst qualifying in 35 years :blink:

And I keep thinking the Toro Rosso thing is something that came out of the MTV3 guys imagination to keep people interested. They need to say their pay-TV channel, and if people think Kimi is going to be lapped 3 times (at least) a race, nobody is going to buy the package. :zz:

The Robertsons are in the paddock in Abu Dhabi (both of them), what not necessarily means they are doing anything related to Kimi because they were also trying to get deals for Nasr, but...

Well since the Robertsons are there, I won't be surprised if they talk to every single team which hasn't signed both of their drivers for next year yet :zz:
