Its a google translation, so please bear.

Kovalainen MTV3: Räikkönen Formula One palannee

10/27/2011


Kimi Räikkönen's return to Formula One is widely speculated in recent times. Lotus Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen believes that Raikkonen is seen as Formula One circus again next season.

- Yes, I would almost guess that Kimi will be back. All signs seem talented in that direction. I have not talked to Kim himself, I have not asked him direct questions, but so much stuff on the move now is that he probably has something in mind, Kovalainen told MTV3.

Kovalainen believes that the 2007 world champion in the return would be "a wonderful thing." Kovalainen believes that Raikkonen could find high-speed, after a few year off.

- I believe that Kim has a lot to come yet, Kovalainen said.

Huhuissa Raikkonen is most strongly linked to Williams.

Wow! so this is really happening. We need a confirmation. In 2009 they said Kimi signed with Mclaren and nothing happened.

Great article Mar :cool:

Another Retro Williams in 2012?

Something struck me today, and it’s kinda cool.

So we all know the Kimi Raikkonen to Williams rumours for 2012, right? Of course we do. The thing is though, they are gathering pace with every passing week. The latest rumour is that Sir Frank Williams has spent the last few weeks in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, trying to drum up enough cash to lure the 2007 World Champion back to the sport.

Anyway, here’s where it gets cool.

It is rumoured that Williams, along with finding some finance from the Qatar National Bank, is trying to get a few old sponsors back on board… namely Saudia, Albilad and TAG.

This year, Williams is running a pretty mega livery, in homage to the Rothmans livery of the mid 1990s.


What chances the 2012 Williams features a Green and White livery, with the old boys back on the sidepods?

And you know the even cooler thing? Think back to this photo… 1982. 2012 will be the 30th anniversary of Keke Rosberg, the Flying Finn, taking the title for Team Willie. A mega fast Finn? In a Green and White Williams? Thirty years on?

It’s too tasty, isn’t it?

According to Planet-F1 Kimi signed with Williams

Kimi Raikkonen is, at least according to rumours in the Indian GP paddock, on his way to Williams next season, having signed a deal.

Ever since he walked away from F1 at the end of the 2009 season, parting ways with Ferrari and failing to secure a return to McLaren, rumours have persisted saying the Finn will return.

The latest, which emerged in the week before the Singapore GP, claimed that he is in talks with Williams regarding next season and even visited their factory in Grove.

However, at the time, his manager Steve Robertson downplayed the visit.

"At the end of the day people know Kimi visited Williams, but there's nothing more to say apart from that," he told GPUpdate.net. "There is nothing more to report."

But, according to PlanetF1's man on the ground in India, Chetan Narula, rumours in the paddock say not only is Raikkonen in talks with Williams but the Finn has in fact already signed a contract to race for them next season.

Claire, a spokewoman from Williams confirmed today that the team hasn't made the final choice of drivers yet. The final decision will be announced after 1 month.
