WRC title means more than F1 - Raikkonen
2007 Formula One Champion Kimi Raikkonen, who has left the Scuderia Ferrari for Citroens Junior Team admits that to him a WRC title would mean more than his 2007 F1 title. Raikkonen spent nine seasons in F1 with three teams, and at last captured the title within his first year at Ferrari.
Raikkonen told the 'Red Bulletin' magazine about the pinnacle of motorsports, "In F1 too many things overshadow the racing. There is too much politics. No-one says what he thinks because he is afraid things are taken out of context. The atmosphere in rally is much nicer. It's more about the performance of drivers."
When asked what a WRC title would mean, the Finn answered, "More than my F1 world championship title. I’m just starting out and I can sense what a long journey it would be to get to that point. No one’s done it before. That’s another thing that makes it interesting."
He also admits that acquiring a future race seat in F1 would be possible, while adding, "But do I want it?"
