Webber kindles Raikkonen-to-Red Bull rumours

Oct.17 (GMM) Rubbished rumours that Kimi Raikkonen could find himself at Red Bull Racing next year have resurfaced in the Interlagos paddock.

It had been rumoured, but subsequently denied by the Finn’s management and dismissed by sections of the specialist media, that talks to replace the contracted Mark Webber in 2010 were taking place.

“Red Bull would be a perfect fit for him,” Australian Webber, referring to 30-year-old Raikkonen who agreed to end his 2010 Ferrari contract to make room for Fernando Alonso, is quoted as saying by the AP news agency.

32-year-old Webber referred to the fact that both he and Sebastian Vettel are already lined up to keep their seats at Red Bull next year.

But he added: “I’m confident that the contracts have been sorted out and if things move around, then they do. It’s normal there’s a bit of fun and games in formula one.”
