Kimi: down but not out?

Despite a sizeable accident on the final stage of the Rally Bulgaria today, the Citroen Junior Team is still holding out hope that Kimi Raikkonen will be able to re-start the second day of the rally tomorrow.

Raikkonen went off less than eight kilometres from the finish of SS4, Belmeken Lake, where he had set fifth-fastest time in the morning.

Nonetheless, having secured fourth place following his team mate Sebastien Ogier’s off in the morning, Raikkonen set off on a more aggressive strategy in the afternoon. He was the only Citroen driver to have opted for Pirelli’s soft-compound tyres, banking on some rain affecting the final two stages.

“I think it’s a good decision,” he said at midday service. “We’ll try something different and see what happens.”

The 2007 Formula 1 World Champion ran at a comparatively conservative pace throughout the penultimate stage, setting sixth-quickest time, but pushed much harder on the final stage, setting the opening two fastest split times despite conditions remaining warm and dry.

Raikkonen then went off towards the end of the stage, landing on his car’s roof. Although the accident was big enough to bring out the yellow flags, Citroen is not giving up hope that the former Grand Prix champion’s C4 WRC can be fixed tonight so that he can start day two under the super rally regulations, with a five-minute penalty per stage missed.

This means that Raikkonen would re-start just outside the top 20 tomorrow, but with every possibility of scoring manufacturer points and acquiring additional experience.

Citroen Junior Team manager Benoit Nogier commented: “We will look at the car when it is back and see if we can re-start under super rally tomorrow. That is certainly our hope, but we can only assess this once we see the car properly. ”

I still don't get the logic why he would get 10 min penalty IF he can continue and not 5 min -> he just mist the last stage?

Kimi crashing is nothing out of ordinary in WRC, for the umpteenth time!

Here is Sebastien Loeb last year, a year ago:

Greece 2009:

Latvala 2009:

Portugal

This year, 2010:

Hirvonen in Portugal:

Petter Solberg New Zealand:

Just to mention a few. This should make you see Kimi's crashes in a new light.

I hope Kimis cars supportive structures are ok. If even one of them is only slightly damaged he cant continue.
Whats this talk about Kimis crashing? Its so normal in rally that I would have been disappointed if he hadnt tried to give it all in this tarmac rally. Tarmac is his surface folks, he has to try how far he can go with a rally car which he is btw trying to learn to know on tarmac conditions. So Kimi, continue to do so if you have to.

Hi Dindi and Ludy, Thanks for the good wishes, I am hurting worse at the minute but we will hopefully have a good result by monday. I have caught up with all your postings and really feel for you guys having such and exiting time one minute and then an agonising one waiting to hear that our two boys were ok. Being a Kimi fan certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Lets all send those mechanics lots of positive vibes to help them put the car back together so they can continue this rally. I think the beers should be on Kimi for his service crew.

Kimi told MTV3 that he took the first stage a bit too easy.
And Mikko joked about switching to F1, because an ex Grand Prix driver was faster than him.

These from MTV3 broadcast on MTV3 MAX..

I was thinking the same thing... his crashes are definitely spectacular every time. But Kimi is also a high profile person i rally so his crashes are hyped a lot more that the other drivers. I mean even if he is out a little bit on the grass its called a CRASH with capital letters...

I don't get it either, Apple :huh:

Maybe it's different for us who have a rallying culture and know that rally means crashing even if you are the best of the best. It takes one split second and you're out.

If you want to look at crashes, take a look at this one :lol:
