E hoje é aniversário de 43 anos de Kaj Lindström, o sempre bacana e paciente co-piloto de Kimi Räikkönen. Quero com este post desejar toda felicidade para o Kaj, um cara que desde o começo tem sido de extrema importância para Kimi nesta nova etapa de sua carreira. Abaixo vocês podem ler um resumo do que Kaj já fez no mundo dos ralis.

Hyvää Syntymäpäivää, Kaj!!

Career Summary

Kaj Lindstrom was once described by a rival as “way too cool” and now he has one of the chilliest jobs in rallying: sitting next to the Iceman. When Kimi Raikkonen started rallying in 2009, he selected Lindstrom to read his pace notes on the recommendation of four-time champion Tommi Makinen, whom Lindstrom partnered from 2001 until 2003.

Previously, he had co-driven another Finn, Tapio Laukkanen (now part of Raikkonen’s safety note crew on asphalt rallies) to a dominant British championship title in 1999.

Lindstrom’s partnership with Laukkanen continued through 2000 and 2001 with the duo taking an excellent fifth overall on Rally Australia in 2000 in a semi-works Ford Focus WRC. Then there were the golden years with Makinen, followed by some selected outings with privateers - until the Iceman came along.

Lindstrom was a vital ingredient in Raikkonen’s transition to becoming a rally driver, having taught him how to make pace notes from scratch, with the duo finishing fifth on Rally of Turkey last year and setting top-four times in Bulgaria, not to mention a stage win in Germany.

This year, they aim to make the most of that experience by tackling 10 rounds in the all-new Citroen DS3 WRC.
