Oh come on Kimi, talk to the radio people! They have been so nice and kind to him. Aren't all rally drivers required to talk to the radio? :p I am not even sure Kimi knows this.

Has this been here ''hmm''

A new water pump for Kimi

Turun Sanomat 8.7 2010 17:28:09

They changed Kimi's water pump in the middle of Thursday testing as a precaution. Yet he was in a splendid speed and was quite trustful about his first rally on tarmac.

–The population by the road was often annoying. It's sometimes a big problem. The noting went well, Räikkönen said.

Kimi is giving in little by little. So far he gives one statement at the end of the day and it looks like Citroen is very protective of him. They said that he is to be left alone since he has had so bad experiences from the press.

But he joked to Becs in Portugal that 'why didn't you talk to me' :lol:

I think he is driving well within himself. He does not want to crash. He would drive guarded until the final stages just like he has done in the previous rallies.


Just think about how this is a new rally to everybody and voilá - Kimi is better than Ford's topdrivers :shhh:

Is that talent or not :O


His talent was never at question, Nicole! :) Yet, one has to take into account the present problems in the Ford world... They are really struggling in the high altitude rallies. However, if Kimi is that good to be on top of them when they hit the trouble, it means he is no rookie anymore! :thumbsup:

Realien, have you noticed how easily we fall into the same thing, making excuses for why Kimi is doing so well? It's kind of scary at times since I find myself thinking in the same lines too - looking for reasons why he is better - it can't be his talent so it has to be the misfortune of others.

Really? :lol: At least he is connecting with them well even if he does not give interviews to them all the time. That's good. I really like the radio people, and am glad that Kimi is in their good books.

I know Dheeban, it even makes me cry sometimes when thinking how good they are to him and how good Citroen is to him, telling the media to back off. One can only wonder what he has gone through during the tough times in F1 when even Ferrari didn't stand up for him - so bless the rally radio reporters who know this and have given him time to get used to them not asking anything negative and treating him in a good way. It must be heaven for Kimi.
