Raikkonen no longer Red Bull candidate - Horner

Kimi Raikkonen is no longer a candidate for a race seat at Red Bull, team boss Christian Horner has said.

Last year, the 2007 world champion - who left F1 in 2009 and has since been racing in the world rally championship as well as NASCAR - was linked with a return to formula one with the energy drink’s premier team.

Red Bull’s Austrian broadcaster Servus last week conducted a viewer survey about who should be Sebastian Vettel’s teammate next year.

Mark Webber received 26.2 per cent of the vote, ahead of Finn and former Ferrari and McLaren driver Raikkonen with 26.1. Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button received 17.4 and 16.4pc of the vote respectively.

"Kimi is a great driver," Horner is quoted by Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat, "but I believe he has put F1 behind him."

According to das BILD Red Bull is planning to sit Kimi in a F1 car next season (here we go again :zz: ). The piece of news is barely two hours old:


Red Bull’s Sensational Plan. Räikkönen, new Vettel’s team-mate?

11.07.2011 - 23:00
By HELMUT UHL and DOROTHEA JANTSCHKE

A mega-comeback is preparing in Formula 1. The sensational Red Bull plan: Kimi Räikkönen (31) should drive next year next to Sebastian Vettel!

Everything is still top secret! But BILD learnt: at the highest level, the Finnish world champion from 2007 (with Ferrari) is being touted as the successor of Mark Webber (34).

The facts:


● Kimi Räikkönen left the Formula 1 in 2009. Since then he’s driving rallies for Citroën. His main sponsor there is – Red Bull. The Finn has a contract until the end of 2012 with the beverage manufacturer. Already in 2010, Kimi was in conversations with the bosses to be Vettel’s team-mate, but he wanted to keep on rallying. Now he seems to have changed his mind.

● Red Bull Motorsports-boss Helmut Marko told BILD two weeks ago: "Webber wants to drive in 2012 for us. But we have other options. I don’t want to talk about it now. "

● Webber himself has upset the bosses with his resistance against the team orders on Sunday at Silverstone ("Stay behind Vettel" - but he kept on pushing). He must report. Webber: "If they want to fire me, I have to accept that."

● Young drivers like Daniel Ricciardo (22/HRT) or Sebastien Buemi (22/Toro Rosso) are not ready yet. Marko: "We need a second winning driver to win the Constructors' Championship. It brings a lot of money. "

● McLaren's world champion Lewis Hamilton (26), who had brought himself into play at Red Bull, got rejected by the top boss Dietrich Mateschitz: "He definitely doesn’t drive for us."
But very likely Räikkönen! He recently confided to a Finnish journalist: "I have never said that my Formula 1 career is over."

And, Vettel and Raikkonen are friends. To the serious question, whom he would like as a teammate, Vettel recently said: "Kimi."

Note: the bolded parts are also bolded in the original article.

BTW, I didn't know that Kimi already had a contract (in general, I don't mean F1) with Red Bull for 2012. How did we miss that? :blink:

Those "facts" that Bild states are really quite flimsy though :zz:
