Kimi R?â?ñikk?â?Ânen will drive for Citroen in the World Rally Championship in 2010.
He will drive a Red Bull-sponsored Citroen C4 – the car in which Sebastien Loeb has won the last three World Rally Champsionship titles.
R?â?ñikk?â?Ânen’s co-driver will be Kaj Lindstrom, who was co-driver for multiple WRC champion Tommi Makinen. They will contest 12 of the 13 WRC events, missing the New Zealand round.
The 2007 F1 champion has previously said he would take a sabbatical from F1 in 2010. But if he decides he prefers life in the WRC perhaps he might not return?
What do you think of R?â?ñikk?â?Ânen’s move to the WRC? Will you be watching his progress in rallying?
