I bet he always wanted to Race in F1. Thats why he has been here for 9 years.
He might not show his emotions, so people make sad jokes about him.

Sadly u`r in that group as well.
Flag:##

What group ? :lol:

Yes, he wanted to race in f1 but not without winning car & money :zz: ...natural hungry racer would have agreed to take pay cut for that Mclaren seat or protest contract breech by Ferrari :zz:

I hope Kimi's fans/supporters here love sports more and won't leave F1 after his exit.


It was not only the salary. It`s about different things which Mclarens do these days. Why to do these many PR events anyway if u`r a racing team then u should have ur drivers concentrating on "RACING"!

About the Rally Stuff and why he wants to rally these days. Remember he never mentioned it when there was on season testing going on in F1. He simply gets bored with only 17-18 weekends of Racing and wants more.

I think I will not be interested in F1 without Kimi. I would rather watch wherever Kimi goes, where it is pure racing and sponsors don`t buy race seats in a team.

MERC's SPONSOR-PARTNER WANTS RAIKKÖNEN - SWITCH CLOSER?

Quote:
21.11.2009 18:50
Ilta-Sanomat

The talks about a sabbatical year seem to go down in history. Merc's Arabic sponsor wants Kimi Räikkönen to the team as a leading star.

The saga of Räikkönen's future has been swelling during the week with a pace two steps forward, one step backward. But if one is to believe the talks from Aabar Investment manager Rudolp Waelsi, the future sponsor for Mercedes from Arab countries, the sabbatical year is no longer an option worth considering.

In Abu Dhabi Sport 2 -channel's interview Waels said that the company wants specifically Räikkönen to Mercedes for next season. Waels justified it by saying that Räikkönen is the only one of the vacant drivers who has a WDC attached to his belt.

Aabar's spokesman assured that they are ready to invest so much in in Mercedes GP in Abu Dhabi that both the WDC and the WCC is possible next season.

Michael Schumacher is also involved in the Merc-rumours. To the comeback-rumour Mercedes replied the following:
- Some speculations are just a dream that will never come true, a representative for Mercedes told Reuters.

Schumacher's comeback-rumour got an extra spin when Eddie Jordan told BBC that he thinks Schumi is the number one driver for Mercedes next season.

But if the information from Abu Dhabi are correct then the job is already ear-marked for Kimi Räikkönen.

Don't be racing hypocrite :p ...without money racing is impossible! PR events are crucial element of F1. Don't forget kimi himself does private personal pr stuff :zz:

I don `t think that I`m a hypocrite. They need sponsors but at least sponsors should not choose drivers.

Heikki Kulta does not think that Kimi is in negotiations for the Mercedes seat anymore, he believes it's between Kubica and Heidfeld, and that Mercedes will wait until December when Renault decides about it's future in F1.

I think Kimi will go to Mercedes if the price is right. Whether or not the price actually is right remains to be seen. But I hope Kimi gets the drive. He is very talented and he shouldn't let his talents go to waste (although Rally also requires talent, but of a different kind).

I agree but sometimes that's the only scope to keep it running for not well financed teams ... In Ferrari's case it was shameful.

If Kimi's not in the running anymore then Mercedes should have the b*** to admit it publicly.

Otherwise, they can stick their PR gloss and attempts at keeping up the hopes of the Kimi fans where the sun doesn't shine.

Even though I'd like him to stay in F1, I think he will be on sabbatical next year. I'm just keeping my hopes up for the possible, but unlikely, return to F1 with Red Bull in 2011.

I hear rumours that Kimi has signed a deal with Citroen thanks to Red Bull and that he will return to F1 in 2011 with RBR...

Raikkonen will be announced as the team mate to Sebastien Ogier in the Citroen Junior Team in a few hours time. He will compete every round except for New Zealand.

Good to hear he's not quitting all kinds of autosport. Hopefully he can make a comeback in 2011
