Default Kimi score first rally points - jordan world rally

Top eight finish in the eight rally he entered into; man this guy is talented to be the best in the rally business too and looks like he is also enjoying it unlike in F1

Kimi is one of the most naturally talented driver next to Gilles Villeneuve IMO. He will acheive more in WRC, I am sure.

I would also await him to come back to F1 2011 in that Redbull if the speculations are rite.

@Raj, thanks for sharing this.

Haha that's a great picture. The cameraman who took this pic is pretty brave to be on the outside of that turn with Raikkonen hurtling toward him on two wheels, even if its a slow corner by rally standards.

Thats a awesome snap. I would bet that the photo taken by the other phographer who is facing the car should be great.

He also had some good start in the WRC, I think he finished top 8 on day1.

OT:
Won't it distract the drivers when some 10 guys are trying to point the camera at you, especially at this point, had Kimi turned to see the obstacle, things could have been different isn't.

Kimi's performance in the WRC has been mediocre at best.
Of course, he's getting the hang of it.

I'm w-a-i-ting to see him drive a tarmac rally.

He was my favourite driver when he was in F1. With him gone, F1 doesn't interest me much these days.

I keenly follow his WRC career. He's made a good start. I hope he can continue to improve and be a genuine contender for victories.

People had too much expectations. Plus he was under pressure to perform and went too fast and crashed out couple times.

He needs to dedicate 3 years of his life to rallying to make the whole thing meaningful.

Raikkonen has made a dramatic exit from the opening day of Rally Bulgaria, crashing his C4 out of fourth place on Friday's final stage.
Thankfully Kimi and his co-driver Lindstrom were uninjured in the accident.
