    Raikkonen to return to Formula 1

    6 world champions, now hopefully this should get interesting if Renault can produce a good car next year.

    BBC Sport - Kimi Raikkonen to return to Formula 1 with Lotus Renault GP

    Will this be good for F1? or is it a little too late for him to return.

    I hope kubica is back in time for the start of the season too. Then it'll be perfect.

    First press conference next year:
    Journalist: 'So, Kimi, are you excited to be back in Formula1?'
    Kimi: ' '

    Oh, can't wait...

    they have said not
    not so sure never though Raikkonen was that good tbh and i dont see renault being much better than this year i suspect they will be racing mercedes for 7-10
    as to sky im just not watching any f1 next year i wont pay £60 a month or so and highlights/relive is just annoying as you then have to try and blockout any sources that might tell you the results so if i cant watch it all live im watching nowt same deal as when wrc went to espn just cba with it anymore

    Good for F1, although this was a guy who didnt exactly perform his best every season. In 2008 it was Massa who became the title challenger not Kimi - and we all know how well Massa has done since Alonso joined.

    I hope he does well and we see him enjoying some more ice cream but I was never impressed with his performances.

    Hopefully he would of learned a thing or two from WRC and possibly could make for some interesting races. I Also agree that he was once a boring racer and if he hasnt changed then i doubt he will be anywhere really.

    It would be impressive if hes WRC skills of power sliding etc and off-roading and handbrake turns etc are useful on the F1 track!! F1 cars don't like that kinda thing we have seen what happens when they bounce over the kirbs a bit fast.

    Will be interesting having so many champions on the grid, but if its too full of these champs will it not get boring then?

    Sounds good. Hope people can start beating Seb next year instead of the common

    1)Seb takes pole once again
    2)Seb some how takes 2 seconds out of 2nd place driver on the first lap of the race
    3)Seb wins

    Sure it was a good season Just wish it was closer
