Although most eyes are now focused on Formula One car launches and their liveries for the 2010 season, Red Bull decided to disclose the latest pictures of Kimi Raikkonen as an official rally racer for Citroen Junior Rally Team. To be more precise, the Finn was the subject of a photo shoot with his new Red Bull-livery Citroen C4 WRC, prior to his rally debut for the new team later this week.

As reported by several media in the last few weeks, the Finn is part of the entry list for this weekend's Arctic Lapland Rally – due to start on January 28 – where he will tackle his first rally as an official Citroen driver, alongside his co-driver Kaj Lindstrom.

Unlike the colors used for the paint scheme of the works' Citroen C4s next season – to be driven by Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Sordo – Raikkonen's is predominantly blue, from the bonnet all the way to the rear side of the car. Obviously, the blue is mixed with the red-yellow Red Bull logos in this process.

In order for the car to look a bit different as compared to the factory C4s, the rear side of the car features a special silver-grey paint scheme.

This is the first time Raikkonen's car livery was made public ahead of the new 2010 WRC season, as the Citroen C4 he tested earlier this month in France was featuring 2009 livery of Citroen Junior Rally Team.

His participation in the Arctic Lapland Rally is seen as a last test for the Finnish driver ahead of WRC's opening round in Sweden, when most of the stages will be comprised of icy or snowy roads.
