Kimi Raikkonen’s manager has say no to rule out the hope of the 2007 world champion returning to formula 1. When Ferrari finished its contract with the 30-year-old Finn one year early, Raikkonen agreed up with Red Bull sponsorship to race a Citroen full-time in the 2010 world rally championship.

It had been rumored that a come back to Formula 1 with Red Bull Racing in 2011 was a opportunity, but the energy drinks-owned team is now projected to renew on-form Mark Webber’s contract for another season.

“Kimi has committed himself to rallying and he seems to be enjoying that environment,” team boss Christian Horner said in Turkey last weekend.

But, Finland’s Turun Sanomat reports that it was Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko most interested in replacing Australian Webber with Raikkonen Manager Steve Robertson said he is not sure what Raikkonen is going to do in 2011.

“We have not had any discussions in any direction for next season,” he told. “There will be a time when Kimi will think about what he wants to do.”

When asked if Raikkonen’s F1 career is over, Robertson answered: “Never say never.”
