RÄIKKÖNEN IS GOING TO CHALLENGE THE TOP IN JYVÄSKYLÄ

Tiistai 27.4.2010 klo 17.21

Kim Räikkönen recently grabbed his second best position in rally.

The Citroen-driver came in 5th in Turkey.

He has chances of doing even better in July in Jyväskylä where he was keeping up a surprisingly fast speed last summer with his Fiat in his career's first WRC-rally.

- Jyväskylä is a familiar rally, except for Sunday, Kimi smiled and referred to him driving out during the last stage on Saturday last year in Jyväskylä.

- Hopefully I have got more experience by the time of Jyväskylä so that I could drive faster and challenge the top. It's easier to go to the races when you have more knowledge about the roads and notes. It will help in Jyväskylä.

Getting to the same speed as the top is Räikkönen's biggest motivator on the rally paths.

- I aim for the top all the time, otherewise there would be no sense to drive. I knew beforehand that the others will go pretty fast but the main thing is that I can improve little by little. When you succeed in one stage it already gives you more self-confidence.

Nine seasons in F1 and 5 rallies in WRC give Räikkönen some insight to the differences between the series apart from the driving.

- There aren't as many races in rally as there are in F1 but the races are longer. F1 was probably 20 years ago the same as rally is today. Rally has a more relaxed style and the settings are different. You don't spend time on the paddock, you are in the middle of the forest driving around from one stage to another.

Miezicat, I don't know when they show it, probably during the next few days and it will probably be on youtube right after that.

I'm so waiting for it!!!!

Oh and by the way, are we sure that we all know that Kimi came in 5th in Turkey :zz: :lol:

RÄIKKÖNEN: I WASN'T THINKING WHAT OTHERS THOUGHT OF ME
27.04.2010 16:17

Kimi Räikkönen still divides opinions on the F1-paddock.

Some couldn't take at all Räikkönen's cool way of taking things while some again felt really warm for Räikkönen both as a human being and as a driver. The Iceman didn't care what others did.

- I didn't think much about what others thought of me. And I didn't think of them.

- It worked for me although others wanted to think more. Everybody out there are their own persons, Räikkönen analysed the F1-drivers.

One who remembers Räikkönen with special warmth is Sauber's technical manager Willy Rampf.

- He was the best driver I have ever worked with. I still respect him very much, Rampf told in Autosport's interview a while ago.

- Rally is probably the same as F1 was about 20 years ago. They do things professionally in rally but the going is completely different, Räikkönen compared.

- Less people and a more relaxed grip in everything, he summed up.
