Theres no way Mclaren are taking back kimi. Kimi & Mclaren really didnt work well together. and if they did which was once in a while it was perfect. But thats just once in a blue moon.
Kimi, Mclaren doesnt take ferrari leftovers.

So Force India fans , dont get your hopes high !
Kimi in Toyota ? That would be interesting ! He might just change their fortunes and in turn get another fortune.
Who said Force India car is not competetive?

Dude, if you don't like Kimi that is fine, but posting rubbish is not. You seem to have selective memory. Kimi won 9 races for McLaren between 2003 and 2005. This is definitely not once in a blue moon.

And btw, McLaren do take Ferrari leftovers. Niki Lauda, Gerhard Berger?

This is ridiculous. Sure they did not win a championship together but the combination rocked!

Technically its Ferrari who took McLaren leftovers in 2007. Its come full circle with Alonso going there and Kimi coming back.

I am least bothered about who takes whose leftovers. I was just replying to danlalan's remark.
Best drivers (Alonso, Kimi, Lewis) should be driving for best teams, thats all.

Yeah yeah, they dont take! But they do steal from Ferrari for "how to build a car"!

Surely Kimi is not goiung to be there next season, so can we expect him in WRC driving a Punto, that will be fun.

No one needs to say it , their results speak for themselves . Its a great team , comping up the ranks but surely its not in a position to fight for the championship next year ?
Raikkonen wants to either fight for the championship or leave f1 altogether .
Most bets are on a switch to Mclaren or Toyota .

Dunno about Toyota. I can't see them as a championship winning outfit by any standard. Its McLaren or Brawn for Kimi.

Toyota seem interested in Kimi. But highly doubtful of this going further

Toyota interested in Raikkonen as well as Kubica - Planet-F1 News - from planet-f1.com

The question is, how do you know who's the top team for 2010. In March 2009, nobody considered Brawn or Redbull a top team but that's exactly what they turned out to be.

True, but I guess he can base it on the 2009 car's performance, when the team started developing the 2010 car etc.

So true. A world championship winning driver does not deserve such treatment. It reminds me of Williams chucking Hill the year after he won his WDC (1996).

RedBull could be another possible team for Kimi. They have Vettel and Webber for 2010, but it seems they too are considering Kimi for next year.

We will know in 3 weeks.
