It would have been nice to see him driving for Renault back in F1, where he is a proven performer. Alot of top drivers from other disciplines have been known to go into NASCAR and end up struggling.

He is the most dissapointing drivers for the fans.Why he didn't accept to replace Kubica this year.He wants only his two former teams especially the red team.Lotus Renault is quite good and you could get fun fighting again against your former rivals like Schumacher,Hamilton,Alonso and Massa.I use to like Raikkonen especially in 2003 season but I made the right choice(in 2003) electing to become a fan of Alonso.He exceeded my expectacions.

Firestorm,there is no way in the world that Kimi would ever consider going back to the Reds,besides he would'nt give them the satisfaction now not after the terrible way in which they treated him.Thats the thanks you get for winning a WDC with them,i bet Kimi's laughing in his boots at Ferrari now and thinking i told you so.

I think it's pretty clear now he just wants to have a bit of fun and said goodbye to any ambitions to win anything relevant.

The move to rallying still had some credibility in that he made the switch with still a couple of years to learn the sport at his age...NASCAR OTOH, you can still do that when you're 50. Shame really, I still would have liked to see him competing in F1 cause everybody knows he's good enough to compete with the best drivers out there and he would have had a couple of good years still left, after which there would have been plenty of time to go to NASCAR, have some fun and earn some more MM in advertising money.

This what has been reported in Aust It sounds like a done deal and he he is not thinking about it.

"According to the Turun Sanomat newspaper, the 2007 Formula One world champion and current world rally driver will compete with the ICE1 Racing team in the Craftsman Truck series before moving up to the Nationwide and Sprint Cup series."
