Manager outlines Räikkönen’s racing plans
Kimi Räikkönen’s current racing agenda has been outlined to GPUpdate.net this week by the Finn’s long-term manager, Steve Robertson. The 18-time Grand Prix winner is currently contesting the World Rally Championship (WRC) with ICE 1 Racing and will continue to do so while embarking on his new NASCAR ambitions.

The ex-Sauber, McLaren and Ferrari Formula 1 driver signed a deal with Kyle Busch Motorsports earlier in April to compete in the NASCAR Truck Series and Robertson has explained that, if Räikkönen’s selected races prove enjoyable throughout the season, the 31-year-old could commit himself to the sport.

"He’s got a plan for this year, so he’s doing some races this year in the trucks and also the Nationwide cars," Robertson told GPUpdate.net.

"That’s happening very, very soon. Obviously he’s got a pretty heavy programme with WRC as well and he’s going to combine the both, which is not so easy to do, but that’s what he wants to do.

"But (his move to NASCAR is) with a view for possibly 2012 and 2013, but he wants to see if he enjoys it first before he makes a decision as to what he does."

Let's see what Kimi does next year, or not. What Robertson says is not always what Kimi does :zz:

Nationwide this season? Any idea with which car?

PS. Thanks Anelise

Me neither. I can't even see Kimi moving to the US! I think, that he wants so see his family and Jenni more often. He has already lost his dad, and you never know what live brings you... I can't even follow Nascar, so I really hope that Kimi will continue rallying, and maybe some day soon he'll be at the podium and win races! Otherwice it could seem like he's giving up...
