Last month we had in reports that the Finn world champion Kimi Raikkonen has showed interest in returning to Formula 1 in 2011 season with Renault. The French team didn’t embrace him well though, although they said they’re happy that Kimi is interested in them, they will consider all the other options for the available seat as well. That apparently has made Kimi quite cross, so much that he’s now saying the hell with Renault, I’ll never drive for them!
Kimi admits that his manager has contacted Renault, but only once weeks ago, that’s it. He thinks that the French has used his name for marketing and making themselves look more interesting than what they really are!
“I am very disappointed with the way they have used my name for their marketing,”. “I have never seriously considered driving for Renault, and I can assure you 100 per cent that I will not be driving for them next year,”
