Latest update : 2009-12-04

Finn driver Kimi Raikkonen has signed a deal with Citroën to compete in the world rally championship (WRC) next season. Raikkonen lost his place in the Ferrari Formula 1 team when he was replaced by Spain's Fernando Alonso.

AFP - Kimi Raikkonen, Formula 1 champion in 2007, will aim for the world rally championship (WRC) title next season after signing for Citroen.
  
The 30-year-old Finn, who has left Ferrari to take a sabbatical from F1, will team up with experienced co-driver Kaj Lindstrom in 2010, rallying's official website reported on Friday.
  
Raikkonen, who took part in the Rally of Finland this year, opted for a change of codes after Fernando Alonso's move to Ferrari and his failure to secure a seat with McLaren for the 2010 F1 campaign.
