Raikkonen’s new look revealed

Pictures showing the 2010 livery of Kimi Raikkonen’s Citroen C4 WRC, and the Finn’s WRC race-suit, have been released by Red Bull.

In stark contrast to his Ferrari red ensemble of 2009, Raikkonen’s new colour scheme is predominantly blue.

His car features an all-blue bonnet, and blue pained panels on each side which extend to the middle of the rear-wheel arches. The car also sports a silver/grey roof and rear end - setting it apart from the white panels of the factory team cars.

With Red Bull a major backer of Raikkonen’s rally programme, it’s no surprise that the drinks firm’s branding features prominently. In addition to the charging bulls on the front doors and bonnet, the Red Bull name is spelt out across the leading edge of the bonnet, while two other Red Bull logos appear on the rear flanks.

Raikkonen and his co-driver Kaj Lindstrom will drive their C4 competitively for the first time on the Arctic Lapland Rally, which starts on 28 January.
