Just like mexico too much excitement here jinxed kimi.
This is way more premature to get out of a rally. He has probably learnt nothing from his 1st WRC asphalt rally.
Robertsons will be giving Renaults Lopez a call after the end of the day.


SilentKiller, no amount of excitement here jinxes Kimi.

Topdrivers crashed in the last rally and rallies before that so it's not any 'Kimi crashes = Kimi doesn't know a thing' here.

Everything happens for a reason. Nobody knows how this affects Kimi's decision since he can now compare what it's like to drive in tarmac rally and on a track.

One shouldn't either forget how he came in 2nd in Italy's tarmac rally and was leading the rally in the beginning - only then some people said that it's only because Ogier made wrong choice of tyres. See how this goes. It always boils down to Kimi's incompetence and luck vs others skills and misfortune :roll::

Now Kimi's choice of tyres is a hush-hush. The fact that he drove faster than most top drivers was nothing.

Well I'm extremely happy that I got the chance and choosed to experience the bliss when he was driving fast as a devil - even if he wouldn't continue tomorrow I still have the experience from today that made me extremely happy for him.

Good news that they're ok! Hope the car is ready for the next day, it would be a certain disappointment from the points view but still a chance to show his blazing speed!

The moment I saw Kimi doing 2nd split faster than anyone else, I screamed in joy and thrill. !yahoo: I want this feeling again and again. :)

SS4: Kimi Raikkonen crashes out

09 July 2010
Citroen Junior Team driver Kimi Raikkonen made a dramatic exit from the opening day of Rally Bulgaria, crashing his C4 World Rally Car out of fourth place on Friday's final stage.

The Formula One star was 19.5km into the repeated Belmen Lake stage when his car left the road. Kimi and his co-driver Kaj Lindstrom were uninjured in the accident.

Emergency vehicles were despatched to the scene, and cars behind Raikkonen were yellow flagged and completed the stage at slow speed.

Before the incident, Sebastien Loeb wrapped up a perfect opening day on Rally Bulgaria by setting the fastest time though SS4 and completing a clean sweep of stage wins.

I have a weak heart, but I can take the media bulls**, I just don´t like people who accept everything what´s told about him, it´s not the media we have to blame, it´s the people who want to hear such stuff and show their naked spite. :zz:
GOODBYE KIMI
GOODBYE RÄIKKÖNEN

The split times page has just shown Kimi's time as 20 min 9 sec at SS4! 5 minutes off the Loeb's time. Does it mean he's been cleared for next day race??? :roll::

Oh No! They've added 5 mins more and now penalty is 10 minutes, it is almost 11 minutes from Loeb... :(

But still a chance for points! :pray:
