Renault confirmed Räikkönen contacted talks about 2012

Lotus Renault GP team Principal Eric Boullier confirmed that 2007 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen management has newly contacted with the team talks about next season. But fresh rumor that Räikkönen comeback to F1 would most likely with Williams F1.

“What about him?” Boullier replied when asked about Räikkönen by the official F1 website. “I have explained how we want to go about our driver line-up for next season. But yes, there has been contact – look at this call (holds up mobile phone) – this was from his manager.”

Lotus Renault GP still not confirmed 2012 full line-up. Russian rookie Vitaly Petrov and the improving Robert Kubica are still under deal with Renault.

“The situation with Robert is easy,” Boullier continued. “We have a moral obligation to make sure that we give him a chance. To make a decision in October or November would not change anything in this team, as the driver market is closed. I am waiting for him to tell me how he feels and I need a commitment from him.

“We also need to make a plan if it (his recovery) is not going as planned, as I don’t want the team to be blamed. It was him who got me in trouble this year and now, if he can’t come back, he has to tell us about it. He has to tell us, but we also must not be stupid. We need a plan.”
