Kimi Raikkonen relaxed over Red Bull link

Published 1 Comments

True to form, Lotus' Kimi Raikkonen didn't have too much to say on the recent rumours of possibly joining Red Bull next season.

Ever since the announcement of Mark Webber leaving Formula 1 at the end of the current season, there has been rumours of the 2007 world champion replacing the Australian's seat.

Red Bull have made it clear who the candidates are for the job with Raikkonen and Toro Rosso's Daniel Ricciardo in contention. 

The latter was given a chance to drive the Red Bull car at the Young Driver's Test and performed admirably.

The Australian was the third fastest in the RB9 car. However, he did spin off the track in another session.

Raikkonen has been linked with a move away as he looks to add to his solitary F1 world championship win. However, the notoriously quiet Finn was in no mood to speculate.

When asked how he feels about a Red Bull move, he told reporters: "Whatever feels right for me. But whatever the decision will be, might feel stupid to somebody else.

"I have no idea what will happen," he added, "we will just have to wait and see what will come, hopefully it will be the right choice."

With the current season just reaching its halfway point, it can still be seen as early days for the staff at Red Bull to answer the all important question of who will replace Webber.
