Kimi keen to give rallycross a go

Kimi keen to give rallycross a go

He has had a taste of the rallying, but Kimi Raikkonen is eager to have a go at other motorsports.

The 2007 Formula One World Champion spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons in the World Rally Championship while he also took part in NASCAR in 2011.

He returned F1 in 2012, but his sense of adventure hasn't disappeared and he has admitted he would like to try his hand in the World Rallycross in future.

"Rallycross would be very nice to try, it looks good fun - similar to rally but against each other," said the Finn.

"Obviously I enjoyed rallying a lot, it's a very difficult sport and a good challenge.

"I think it's good to do different things because you always learn something and it's good fun also."
