Then she walked away from it all, taking a four year hiatus from racing. She’s always said that her funding simply dried up and it was time to take a break, but the truth, as it turns out, is a bit more sinister and a whole lot more creepy.
For the 2010 season, still hoping to eventually make her way to Formula 1, Kimiläinen was negotiating for a ride … More
