With the recent rumors about Kimi Raikkonen ending his motorsport career following his father’s death, it’s a relief to hear that the Finn F1 world champion is still up and running! And he will be competing in 2011 World Rally Championship WRC with his own team, named Ice 1 Racing Team.
In 2011 Citroen won’t be running any WRC Junior team and they will just focus on the official team with Sebastien Loeb Sebastien Ogier. So Kimi has to enter with his own team and with his own sponsors. Apparently he has enough funds for just 10 races of the 13 rounds of 2011 WRC calendar, but he will be driving a Citroen DS3.
The former WRC champ Peter Solberg will also compete with Citroen DS3 running his own team, apparently for only one event unless he can come up with ore funds!
