Im Obviously Hoping Kimi has a good Rally like I hope every Rally Driver does, going off the road hard is a horrible feeling

Finland is so technical that if you take the wrong line or turn a fraction to early or to late it could be curtains

I only wish I was in Finland next weekend, it has been so tempting to just say Screw it and get on a plane.

Kimi and Juha Kankkunen fighting it out, Mikko, Jari Matti, Loeb, Solberg and and Ogier all fighting it out, im sure this year was the year to watch as its the last time we use the current WRC cars

Oh well Motors TV it is then - lol

I hope Kimi stays on the Road and gets a good result by the end of the Rally

Gooo Kimi.

btw it was €24m not €34m and it included 09 salary & sponsorship for when he was racing F1. Dropped from €42 m the previus year. Just goes to show he isnt in it for the money. Respect. :)

Yeh, thats the good thing about Rallying.

Its funny the Rallying v Racing pay issue

Its like Rugby v football, both sports have tremendously talented sportsmen, yet one sport sees players getting paid millions and the other maybe a couple of grand per game.

Well, im pleased to say that I like the lower paid of both spectrums, I like Rugby and obviously Rallying too.

For sure if you are in Rallying your not in it for the money - lol

Obviously there are exceptions like Mcrae who were able to command £3 million per season but most dont even see a million at their peak at the sport.
