Is he coming back, or is he not? Looks like former world champion Kimi Raikkonnen won’t be making a return to Formula 1, instead prolonging his stay in the rally scene, at least for now. The Finn’s management team has said that Kimi desires to compete in the World Rally Championship for 2011.
“We’re no longer looking at opportunities in F1. Kimi seems to be focused on rallying at the moment,” Steve Roberston told Finnish TV. He didn’t rule out a return in the future though, saying: “Never say never, but right now our eye is not on F1.”
However, the Iceman is still searching for a home for next season, and may not end up with the Citroen’s Junior team as per this year. “Nothing’s been decided yet. We’ll let you know when there is something to say. At the moment nothing has been signed. We’re talking to several teams,” his agent said.
It seems to me that Kimi is forever shopping, although this approach does get him some serious pay packets!
