Raikkonen not returning to F1 - Ecclestone

By on Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Mar.1 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone does not think F1's world champion of 2007 is ever coming back to his sport.

After committing to a second full-time season in the world rally championship this year, Kimi Raikkonen said he has "no interest" in returning to F1.

"No one really knows why Kimi left F1, and many have tried to bring him back again," F1 chief executive Ecclestone told the German language Kicker magazine.

"But Kimi has decided to do something else -- and that will remain the case," added the 80-year-old Briton.
