Jun.1 (GMM) Kimi Raikkonen's affair with the world of professional rallying is not over for this year, his co-driver has revealed.

After two outings in the winter, the Ferrari driver crashed out of his latest foray last weekend in the Rally della Marca, again at the wheel of his own Fiat Abarthe Grande Punto.

But Kaj Lindstrom, who also famously sat alongside multiple world rally champion Tommi Makinen's career, told wrc.com that the 29-year-old Finn's impact with a stone wall was triggered by a handling problem due to a broken differential.

"Looking forward, yeah, there is a plan," he revealed. "I'd say it's most likely he will do more rallies this year."
