Raikkonen 17th after second rally
Feb.22 (GMM) F1’s Kimi Raikkonen this weekend completed his second professional rally in 17th place.

Earlier this winter, the Ferrari driver finished 13th on his rally debut, having entered a Fiat Abarthe Grande Punto S2000 in the Arctic Lapland Rally in his native Finland.

He reprised the rally with the next round of the Finnish Rally Championship, the Vaakuna Rally in Mikkeli, again with the Tomi Makinen Racing-prepared Abarthe.

Raikkonen, 29, was eight minutes behind the rally winner Jari Ketomaa at the finish, but had been seventh overall at one stage prior to an off.

Now color me reactionary but most F1 teams have contracts that do not allow their drivers to participate in other series. They have to protect their investments from harm. Why would Ferrrari allow Kimi to start doing rally’s? Is this s foreshadow fo what Kimi is going to be doing? Is he getting he Rally chops honed so he can walk out of Ferrari with the skills neede to succeed in Rally? Just wondering.
