Despite constant speculation linking him to a return to the F1 stage, the rapid filling up of the top-flight race seats hasn’t elicited any urgency in 2007 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen to decide if he’ll make a return to F1.
The Ferrari driver
was booted left the Ferrari team at the end of last season, a year before his contract expired, and made a switch to the World Rally Championship for the Red Bull-backed Citroen Junior Team.
Speaking with Italy’s Autosprint, the 30-year-old Finn said: “I watch races on television, but I don’t miss anything except for the driving. I will make my decision completely calmly and without outside pressure. I have only a one year contract [with the WRC] but I don’t have any hurry to make any decisions.”
Despite having previously been linked as a candidate to replace the supposedly-retiring (and now, not retiring) Mark Webber at Red Bull, Räikkönen is now linked as a possible team-mate to Robert Kubica at Renault.
