Saat Kimi pertama kali masuk ke F1, ia sempat diragukan karena kehadirannya di Formula One memang hanya berbekal Super Licence. Saat itu Kimi masih rookie yang minim pengalaman. Berbanding terbalik dengan tahun pertamanya di F1, Kimi disambut baik saat memasuki WRC. Semua tokoh di WRC memberikan komentar yang baik tentang Kimi. Hal ini tentu bukan hal yang mengherankan. Ia memasuki WRC dengan titel juara dunia F1 2007. Kimi sudah membuktikan diri. Tapi apa kata Kimi soal karir barunya di WRC? Berikut adalah petikan wawancara dari situs resmi WRC:

What are your ambitions for the season ahead?
"First of all we have a lot to learn from the rallies, and that's not going to be an easy challenge. We did one rally last weekend [read more here] and it definitely helped us going to Sweden. We'll just take things from there. We need to do our best, learn as quickly as we can and hopefully get some good results."

Will you be disappointed if you don't get a podium this season?
"I don't know, because it's too early to say. Like I said, we need to learn a lot. Hopefully at some point we can be really fast. But at the moment I don't know what to expect."

What are you looking forward to most this season?
"I would say everything, because everything is new and completely different to Formula One. At this stage it's all exciting; it doesn't really matter where we go or what we do, it's a new thing."

What is it about driving a rally car that you find so appealing?
"For me the thrill of driving is all about the challenge. And in rallies there are so many variables - like different conditions, different roads and different surfaces - that there is a big challenge. When you go on a stage, things can change from corner to corner so much and it's just a great feeling to drive the car when it's like that. There are a lot of things you can learn. For instance, in a rally you might have to master three different types of conditions. In Formula One that's not the case."

How do you get faster in a WRC car?
"You need experience and a lot of practise and testing. It takes time but I guess more kilometres will the main key to improvement. Also I need to learn the notes and be able to listen very well. They're the main things."
How does the WRC compare to F1?
"It's a completely different world. The events themselves are different and the people are different. At this launch, with everyone together, there seems to be a more open and easy relationship between the teams and that's one of the very nice things about rally. There is also a sense that the sport is picking up. There have been maybe some difficult times but it looks like everything is turning better and in the next couple of years it should be even more popular that it is now. It's quite strong."

Are you serious about rally?
"Yes. I wouldn't be here if I wasn't serious. Anytime I start something new I want to learn, and try to do the best I can. It's something that's going to be a big challenge and I'm looking forward to it."

Are you looking forward to any rallies in particular?
"In this car everything is new this year. Finland is the only one I know a little bit, so in that way that should be the easiest one, but what I learned there last year is that it's a tricky place. Asphalt rallies will also be nice; I'm looking forward to seeing how the car handles."

What about a return to F1? At what point in the year are you going to have to make that choice about what you do in 2011? "I have set no deadlines on myself. Let's see how things are going. I really enjoy it here now, and if it's like this then maybe I stay or maybe I try something else. I have no plans, no deadlines yet. Let's see what happens."
