intresting, along side Ken Block eh? now thats a sweet line up!!! ken block is a god on four wheels.
It would be alongside Block. Unfortunately he hasn't scored a point this year, Ken, but I bet he is better next year.

With all the rumours and with Robertson admitting having discussions with Renault I'm sure that there are some bigger things going on behind the scenes and this Renault-thing is only a smokescreen.

Funny thing is that when Kimi knew last year that he was sacked from Ferrari, his title in his column was 'Sayonara'. Today he had the same title in his column and I don't believe that he will stay in rally...

Rumours say that Red Bull will stop sponsoring Citroen and I suspect that Kimi might drive for Red Bull next year.

Flavio will become Ferrari's team manager next year, mark my words. And Domenicali will be sacked. Massa will not want to stay there. Flavio will arrange for Webber to come to Ferrari - his both boys would be under the same roof.

Speculation so far but I wouldn't be surprised if it would become true.

My only concern is Massa. I wish all the best to him since he is a nice guy ;)

But so ironic that once the rumours about Kimi coming to F1 started again it made the Italians nervous - as if Kimi would ever even consider Ferrari again. A guy said already: If he goes there then I will personally go and drag him out of the car - he is a Kimi-fan ;)

Look how mentioning Kimi's name put a spin on the press. Free PR for Renault and imagine this boring and colorless guy getting all the attention even though he doesn't say a word ;)
Kimi never promised anything else than one year in rally. Sponsored by Santander & Ferrari. Quite a good deal to get 20 million euros for the public humiliation and smearing campaign, not to mention what Citroen and Red Bull have paid him for this year.
If he comes back to F1 he is right on the map after driving rally in WRC for a year. It cannot but help on the tracks.
I thought you've said Kimi was happier in rally than in F1 and that he had lost interest in F1 ... If just after a year he wants to come back to F1 then rallying is not that good ..

I think he should stay 2 or 3 more years in rally ... He never seemed happy or interested in F1 and it looked as if he didn't care about winning a WC as Schumacher, Hamilton, Senna, Alonso and Karum Chandhok ...

RNB

Actually you have language problems or reading comprehension problems as I NEVER said I knew what Kimi was thinking ... I said "HE NEVER SEEMED" .. and "IT LOOKED AS IF" that means .. MY OPINION ... or MY PERCEPTION ... or "I see it that way" .. so .. don't talk about credibility but perception if you want ... but as an opinion .. it holds valid !!...

See?.. again RNB ... shhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I never said he had lost interest in F1, only that he looked a lot happier.

We asked Mr. Kulta about it and he said that Kimi is the same person but the difference is that in rally he is stared at for 30 minutes and he is driving on the road for 12 hours whereas in F1 he was stared at for 12 hours. So we actually got to see the 'real' Kimi which was wonderful ;)

Maybe you should write a letter to Kimi and tell him what he should do, I'm sure he will follow your advice ;)

Just because you are from a country where emotions are expressed all the time doesn't make you an expert - on the contrary - telling how happy people are.

In Finland we don't act that way since the winter makes us introverts. I'd say our feelings run a lot deeper than yours. It can be difficult for a superficial person to 'read' other people and their emotions even if they don't show them in public.

Amazingly many fell for that illusion ;)

Luis, one more thing:

Now that you see Massa in Ferrari where he isn't exactly 'welcomed' by some team members, does he look happy and motivated in your eyes?

As I recall it Ferrari was desperate to get rid of Kimi. People sense that and act accordingly.

And if you ask me, Massa was totally screwed by the team this year. Totally.
