Citroen And Redbull Sign Kimi Raikonen For 2010 WRC - Web Exclusive

Dec 11, 2009

As the most successful driver in WRC history, Citroën driver Sébastien Loeb and co-driver Daniel Elena have a record number of wins. And since the association between Citroën Racing and Red Bull began in 2008, the partnership reaped world titles in 2008 and 2009. What’s more, the ties between the two companies are to be stepped up for 2010 because, in addition to the Citroën Total World Rally Team’s Citroën C4 WRCs entered for drivers Sébastien Loeb and Dani Sordo, a second Citroën team will also run two C4 WRCs for drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Sébastien Ogier in the colours of Red Bull and Citroën.

The deal has been extended in 2010 to include the two Citroën Junior Team cars that will compete in Red Bull's colors for the first time on 12 of the 2010 FIA World Rally Championship's 13 rounds, the exception being the Rally of New Zealand.

These two C4 WRCs will be campaigned by Kimi Räikkönen/Kaj Lindström and Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia.

Finland's Kimi Räikkönen, 30, won 18 Formula 1 Grands Prix and claimed the F1 world championship in 2007. Since then, he’s contested several rallies in 2009 – including his home round of the WRC: “I always wanted to compete in rally, especially in the World Rally Championship, at some point in my career. Thanks to Red Bull, I have the opportunity to drive the best car in the series. This is a new but very exciting challenge. For the moment we have a one-year contract and will see how it goes for the future. I am really looking forward to testing the car and taking the start of the first rally,” said Räikkönen.
