Another Flat Brimmed Superstar is WRC bound


I'll give you one guess which on it is...


The WRC pales in comparison to F1 when it comes to speed and money, but most of all drama. Drivers switch teams more often than my smelly room mates do laundry, FIA gents get caught having sex with Hitler, some's a bit smarter than the pack and the rule makers and they're called cheaters, and on and on. F1 is the car guy's soap opera. With all the recent driver changes, Mercedes buying out Brawn, Honda leaving, and Lotus coming back it seems that the 2010 season will be business as usual, as unusual as it is. Continuing with the shinanigans is Kimi Raikkonen's announced move to the WRC despite having one year left on his contract with Ferrari. Apparently he failed to secure a seat so he's planning on doing what any over paid race car driver with a God complex does; try and dominate another sport. His last attempt was in August at Rally Finland where the engine on his Abarth Grande Punto S2000 had some issues then he stuffed his car in to a ditch and gracefully limped to a 15th place finish.


Place your bets on the battle of the flat brimmers...
