Pedro de la Rosa has revealed he would love to see Kimi Raikkonen return to formula one.

The 2007 world champion is linked with a seat at Williams, with the British team reportedly set to announce its 2012 lineup within the week.

"For now it's only a rumour but I would welcome it," said Spaniard de la Rosa, who worked alongside the Finn at McLaren five years ago.

"He is one of the best drivers that I worked best with," the McLaren reserve driver is quoted by Spanish reports. "He is such a natural talent and F1 is better with him than without him.

"Formula one is his place and I am glad to hear that he has been training hard.

"He is a tough opponent but of course it depends on what Williams can do. They have had a very bad year but for sure Kimi is going to strengthen them."
