  2. Breaking news: Red Bull announces plan to introduce Red Bull branded ice cream in the market. Witnesses have confirmed that Kimi Räikkönen might have smirked briefly.

    Honestly? If Red Bull gets Kimi, I can't see how they expect to have team orders.

  3. thread title is a bit misleading, quite different from the below.

    “Kimi is cool and fast and always a candidate.”

  5. I dont know if Kimi would go due to the team orders saga.... But any orders would likely go straight out the window
  6. Dan the Man twisting and turning quotes again:laugh:
  7. Kimi is not going to drive in any team next year if he's not #1 driver. It's not about money, it's about motivation. He's way too focused on winning the second WCC, playing second fiddle for wad of cash is not on his agenda. He is a realist, #2 drivers have multiple times worse chances.. At best, he could be interested in one-on-one fight with Vettel, they are good friends. But, as i see it, either he continues with a top team clear #1 driver or does something else for a year.. And comes back again... and again.... and again...
  8. I would love to see Kimi in that team in a fair fight with Vettell, what a mouth watering prospect that would be. Never say never, but team orders would definitely not be accepted by the ice man!!

    As Felipe Massa has said, there aren't many drivers like him. Webber is one of them, that's why he's still at Red Bull despite sub par performances the last 3 seasons considering the machinery he was given.

    Now, that leave's Red Bull two options. Webber or Massa. That's absolutely it for them if they want a number two driver. I love JEV, he is an arrogant frenchman and he will not play second fiddle to Vettel, even for a drive in a Red Bull, Ricciardo I'm not so sure about, but he seems like a real racer.

    I think Red Bull know this, they have put themselves in a position where no-body wants to be team mates with Vettel, and this makes the choices slim.

    Raikonnen won't go to Red Bull.

    If you get a Quali Place, you can get a Race Pace

    I think Perez (or Button Even, but more so Perez) should leave at the end of the season, that will pave the way for Kimi to join McLaren, and to be instated as #1 Driver. Whoever goes to Red Bull will be making a bad Career move, if Seb is still there.

    I hope Kimi stays where he is, at Lotus Renault. Why move to yet another team as you can win races here as well.

    Good car, good team, good successful vision so far and don't forget that this original team has won a lot more in recent years than McLaren.

    I think this Red Bull punishing Vettel for Malaysia

    "Get your act together or we'll get a driver in who will you show you up for what you really are"

  13. Well I don't see Kimi at Red Bull to be honest. Will be a bit of a Senna-Prost kind of duo. It would certainly be great for us fans, but I'm not sure the team will like this an awful lot.
    I'd like to see Sebastian moving to another team, and Kimi stepping in at Red Bull. But of course that's not going to happen..
  14. rami Why would Kimi go back to a team that cost him 2 WDCs, that being 2003 and 2005? Plus he is probably more relaxed in Lotus.

    I don't know, it was an idea :cautious: . Do you know what the future holds? If so, please tell me.

    It was also what I would perhaps like to happen, doesn't anyone have a right to post their opinion?!
  16. "sebastian kimi is faster than you!!" :cool:

    "Confirming that!"

  17. Do like the idea of this....yet, I think it will not happen. McLaren will invest in Perez, he is still young and learning. If anything JB could move on.....who knows. Its a lotto innit.
