It would seem, that Kimi is negotiating with Renault. Story on mtv3.fi/f1 in a bit.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

Help please Mar [help] :pray: :hug:

Sorry for the delay, my brothers internet connection fell down :<>:

Motorsport-magazin says the sponsor offered 8 million to Renault but they didn't even think about it because they don't want a driver whose motivations not sure. EDIT: and who brings money (yes, that doesn't make sense, but it's motorsport-magazin)

Motorsport-total says that some media reports that the deal with Williams didn't work because Kimi asked for 12 millions as a salary.

Thanksss :hug:

Well at least Renault is a step above Williams but then again, he's dealing with Boullier :roll:: so I don't have high hopes

But I think what Renault are looking for is not a sponsor who will pay Kimi 8 million dollars because Renault won't see a single cent, but rather if Renault get a pay driver, all the money that will into their coffers instead

30 million, yeah right. :roll::

The la Stampa article is a joke as well. :roll::

The longer this goes on the more excessive the numbers are growing.

I suppose almost nobody has a clue of what has happened so many people invent stories to fill pages. The 12 million differ is from Spanish Marca, who are not reliable at all. 30 million... Well, that.
I think I will stick to Auto, Motor und Sport stories, as usual. ''hmm''

Brundle said that Kimi won´t go to Williams next year!
Have to admit that I´m pretty sad about it! Never thought that I would feel like that at the beginning! :(

Would have been nice to know already this year what Kimi is planning to do next year!
Kimi Kimi gimme just a little smile :)

From BBC:

Former world champion Kimi Raikkonen's move to Williams looks to be over. Adrian Sutil is the new favourite for that seat, but some saying their Finnish reserve Valtteri Bottas could be promoted.
Full story: BBC F1 editor Andrew Benson on Twitter

I'm not sure how a tweet qualifies as a full story though :roll::

Renault to decide on 2012 driver line-up within the next fortnight
When asked about suggestions that Raikkonen was now a serious possibility with a move to Williams now looking unlikely, Boullier said: "Kimi is a possible scenario... yes, if you want. But the list is long, and there are even some drivers under contract [elsewhere], who have some clauses to get out of their contracts. So the list is quite long."

The longer it lasts with the rumours the more less is my hope of a comeback :( I thougt we´ll get the decision earlier this year but it seems we have to wait as long as in the last two years...
