Raikkonen Will Return to F1 in 2012

Renault has ended speculations ever Kimi Raikkonen’s return to F1 by announcing today that Raikkonen has indeed signed a two year contract with Renault.

“My time in the World Rally Championship has been a useful stage in my career as a driver, but I can’t deny the fact that my hunger for F1 has recently become overwhelming, and I’m truly delighted to be coming back”, Raikkonen said.

Raikkonen won a Driver’s championship with Ferrari in 2007, after spending the five previous years with McLaren.

After a disappointing 2009 season, he ended his contract a year early, giving Fernando Alonso a drive with Ferrari, saying that he would instead compete in the World Rally Championship.
