Kimi says he can find seat also from other teams.

Why would Kimi go to another team??? Back to McLaren?

I don't see Kimi in a renault or a toyota. He's the iceman. And if he doesn't fit in the drivers line-up at McLaren or Ferrari, I think it's over.

Kimi vs Kov... I would have to go with Kimi for the WCC but it would again put the WDC up for grabs between two drivers at McLaren and we all know how the Hamster handles that...

Just some sort captions from this interview with MTV3
- Kimi says that he has a contract for the next season and that's the only thing he can tell us. He says that it seems like that everyone else are more worried than he is about the situation. But he also says that if something else happends it's not for he to decide.

- He says that he can find a car to drive if he wants to. It's not a problem. He says that it depends on many other things. He also says that we should just see what others decide and how it ends. But he did also say that there are always stories involved and he hasn't been bothering himself with those.

- Kimi was also asked whether he actually wants a car next year and he answered that he wouldn't have made a contract if he didn't want to drive. He once again says that it depends on many other things.

In an interview with Belgian rtbf, Presentator Gaetan Vigneron asked Kimi if there's a chance he'll move to wrc next year. Kimi's answer was :"at the moment, it's just for fun"

I see no chance of happening that ... zzzZ

Kimi will stay at Ferrari for 2010.

I hope him and Alonso at Ferrari next year.

Unfair to Massa, I know, but the Kimi in the second half of this season is the Kimi of old it seems. 3 great drives in a row. His talent is amazing, as I always said: It´s all about the mindset. If he can stay hungry and focused like that then he and Alonso as teammates could win 10 or more out of 18 races next year.

Simply because Massa is absent :zz: massa was doing better than him but certainly now he is performing better than before; may be getting more focus from the team :p

Kimi should at Ferrari till the end :zz: He has said before Ferrari will be the last team.

Also from last few races Heikki is doing good .. Finnish are finishing it :lol:
