Come on, they are issues unsolved with Ferrari and Alonso. He is right to be disappointed with f1 comparing his races with Alonso. For instance, Singapore this year where was given a podium to Alonso(and i'm not talking of last year). Nurburing, where all the people had the strange strategic decision to make the pit stops and exit in front of Kimi,regarding the final result. Silverstone, when once again, N.Piquet let is fellow in the team to pass him, and so on. I think i couldn't go to Algarve this year, to see the Portuguese Rally, but i will watching it in the TV.

Not a bad deal Taz. :) Sounds like the WRC atmosphere is friendlier and relaxed from the elitist corporate world of F1. Perhaps that is what Kimi needs and wants right now.

Congrats to Kimi. He is doing something that challenges him and is making him happy. I hope that next season he will return to f1. Will follow his career in rally also. Good luck!
