Former F1 racing driver and world champion Kimi Raikkonen has signed with Citroen for 12 races in the 2010 World Rally Championship. He will get to drive the Citroen C4, a car that dominated about everything since it was launched. Failing to find a seat in the 2010 F1 Championship, the Finn has focused on his other racing passion: Rallying. He got to drive a Fiat Punto S2000 earlier this year, but unfortunately he ended his rally with a DNF. For 2010 he will be joining Citroen’s junior squad and his co-driver will be fellow countryman Kaj Lindstrom. Raikkonen said: “I always wanted to compete in rally, especially in the World Rally Championship at some point in my career,” and he thanked Red Bull, his sponsor, which helped him get there.
