Red Bull will keep on supporting him, because he generates media attention. Just compare how much attention Kimi gets compared with (let's say) Malcolm Wilson?!

I dont think some people appreciate just how fast a WRC event is and how easy it is to get caught out at every corner

I think its tough for Kimi to come into WRC with no little or no previous experience. I think he had done really well so far considering...

He seems really smitten with the Sport which is great for Rally, I hope he continues to improve and get faster and faster. I think the up coming Asphalt events will give him a huge boost and a lot more confidence and a lot more experience which he needs

Lets hope he decides to stay next year, he is another addition to the WRC and we need every WRC driver we can get, even those who usually finish 7yh or 8th and sometimes 6th
