He was still miles off of the other Citroen drivers. In the final standings Ogier was within reach but I think he had a mistake somewhere and took some penalty minutes cause he was way in front of Kimi earlier.

I think the asphalt races will be the decider. If Kimi finds himself some way off the pace of the likes of Sordo and Ogier on asphalt as well, there´s not much point in staying in WRC and Citroen will have no reason to keep him in that seat when they see someone like Solberg taking podiums in a privateer C4.

I hope he does alright on asphalt, save face and then go back to F1 anyway.

Not really the same thing though. Sure, I´ll give Kimi a pass for these first few rounds on ice and gravel, but Citroen-Red Bull isn´t giving Kimi this ride just for the publicity.

He´s in one of the top cars and he´s an F1 world champion. I´m sure they expect him to deliver on asphalt and I´m sure he expects to do well there himself. If he´s not competitive there (as in minutes off the pace) I think it will be a blow for his own motivation as well as for Citroen.

Both of these things might sway him back to F1.

It would be nice if in 2011 Raikkonen would be back in Redbull and jaques V also back like in a Force india Sutil this year world champion, Then you can see a battle of the champions.

Formula 1 doesnt need Kimi Raikkonen, he priced himself out and he is forgotten already, he should stick to rallying.

Strange him saying that he didnt realise that F1 was at Malaysia this weekend, dont think he have any interest in F1 unless it's money.

Kimi is too dull, moody and boring, who need him?

Bye Bye Kimi and stay away:-o
