Is The Iceman Making a Comback?

(Photo Credit:

Lets hope so! and Yahoo Motorsport UK are reporting that Kimi "Iceman" Raikkonen is in talks with Renault for a possible seat in the 2011 Formula 1 season.Raikkonen's manager has confirmed that they are in talks with Renault over a possible F1 start next season, and that they "want to explore all the possible options for next year."Renault has only confirmed Robert Kubica for next season, which puts Vitaly Petrov's seat in jeopardy of a possible Raikkonen fill. While it would be a shame, and I would hate to see Petrov go so early, the possible return of The Iceman is very, VERY exciting for Formula 1.
  Kimi Raikkonen left his seat with Scuderia Ferrari last year, and took the dive into the FIA World Rally Championship for the 2010 racing season. While his season has been marred by lackluster success (especially after his disappointing exit from Really Japan last week.), he has still been a competitive racer in WRC.
  Whatever comes of the Raikkonen-Renault talks, lets hope Kimi has a better 2011 season in whichever event he ends up on.

Edit: first photo I had up was not of Raikonnen. Apologies for the mix up.
