MP4-21 holds key to Kimi 's future
Monday, 27 February 2006

The Irish 'Setanta' broadcaster quoted the Finn, who is strongly linked with a move to Ferrari, as saying that he had 'not decided' what to do in 2007 and beyond.

Raikkonen added: ''But (this indecision) cannot go on for too long.

''At some point everyone needs to make a decision.''...

Kimi, 26, denied that he is baulking at the concept of facing off at the silver clad outfit with 2007 arrival Fernando Alonso.

He said: ''I don't care who my team mate is, I am not afraid of anybody. That (fact) will not determine whether I stay (at McLaren) or go somewhere else.''

In the Italian 'Gazzetta dello Sport', Kimi continued that he will wait to gauge the pace of his McLaren in 2006 before making the call.

And he insisted: ''I have lots of options.''


Comments: It 's only logical that Kimi 's no.1 priority is becoming a World Champion. For that, he needs a decent car, so he will probably wait till the middle of the current year to see if McLaren have solved their ever-lasting reliability problems.

Let 's hope we will never have to see Kimi in red...

Will Kimi beat Alonso in 2013 - 2014 season?
