Formula One: Talk rife that Raikkonen will leave Lotus and rejoin Ferrari
LONDON (AFP) - Kimi Raikkonen is poised to make a decision on his future in Formula One this week, amid growing speculation that he will leave Lotus and rejoin Ferrari for 2014.
The Finnish driver's future at Lotus was the talk of the paddock in the aftermath of last weekend's Italian Grand Prix, while there were also suggestions that Ferrari will replace Brazilian Felipe Massa after eight years.
Should the the moves go through, Ferrari will have an all-star driver line-up of former champions with Raikkonen - the 2007 title winner - alongside two-time champion Fernando Alonso of Spain.
If Raikkonen leaves Lotus, he could be replaced by any of Massa, Germany's Nico Huelkenberg, now with Sauber, or a younger driver.
