Rami will take part in the Arctic Rally with Kimi’s old car Super 2000 Fiat Grande Punto.
"I haven’t rallied other than in some village races. It’s an
interesting project. I went to test the car for one day in Finland
and it is a racing car compared to the other cars I have had."
Rami is going to enjoy the rally without setting any goals.
"I should try to get to the finish line. I haven’t driven pace-note races for a while but I’m going there for my own pleasure to enjoy.
The others can put goals."
Rami might also take part in other rallies this year.
"Let’s see what’s left of the car after Arctic Rally. I haven’t registered to the national serie."
The Räikkönen brothers haven’t at least yet given any rally-tips to each others.
"We have talked about it a few times with Kimi. I think Kimi is waiting eagerly for the rally."
Rami has two sons, Tiitus and Justus, and it’s possible that we will see more Räikkönens in the top of motorsport.
"The boys are four and five this year. The older one has already
drove in karting for a couple of summers. They don’t talk about
anything else than cars and engines. The boys will also go to the north
with us and they are asking all the time ‘When are we going to Lapland?’," Rami smiles.
