Kimi Paid To Not Race in 2010

Kimi Raikkonen stands to make more money in 2010 if he takes a sabbatical.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport reports that if the Finn accepts McLaren's current offer, he will earn 15m in 2010, as opposed to 17m if he has a season on the sidelines.

According to his termination deal with Ferrari, the Italian team has promised to pay Raikkonen (30), 17m if he does not race in F1 next year, and 10m if he finds suitable employment elsewhere.

Realising this, McLaren has reportedly offered Raikkonen just 5 million for the 2010 seat, concluding that 15m in total earnings is a very healthy amount for the 2007 world champion.

Presently, Raikkonen's management team of Steve and David Robertson is demanding that McLaren pay a full retainer, plus agree to a reduced amount of sponsorship days for their charge.

Nick Heidfeld has been touted as McLaren's 'plan B', and in an interview with spox.com, the German was asked about Martin Whitmarsh's recent statement that the 32-year-old is perhaps F1's most underrated driver.

"At the moment I'm not ruling out any team," he answered.

Well, this is getting pretty ridiculous, I agree.

Then again, the amounts are not much more idiotic than say in soccer. And though Kimi wasn't quite the man Ferrari had hoped for, one might argue it could be a good thing for them to keep him out of a competing seat.

Now whether Kimi's "nuisance value" is this high, I highly doubt, which brings us neatly back to saying: ridiculous!

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse of course. That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister F.

Kinda like LM, steering the CA into the beach: can he just throw away the keys anymore?

I know FA will be a better addition than Kimi, but giving Kimi that much for 'another seat' to race against Ferrari doesn't make much sense....no wonder my OEM blinker fluid costs too much

It is no replica. It's Massa's ride. Ferrari Club of America sponsored a charity event in Baltimore's Little Italy recently, and supplied the car through Bridgestone. Schumacher's ride was also there. Pictures don't do justice.
