Raikkonen to Mercedes rumors in the night

1 Mins read

According to reports from Brazilian media, Kimi Raikkonen has finalised a deal to race with the new Mercedes Grand Prix team for 2010.

With reports earlier today signalling Raikkonen’s exit after McLaren talks failed and the subsequent signing on champion Jenson Button, his manager Steve Robertson told press that McLaren was his only option.

“The options in F1 were with McLaren next season or not at all. Kimi and McLaren were unable to reach an agreement, so he will not drive at the F1 level – at least not next year.” Said Robertson

Although the source of the news has been proved correct a number of times this year, we will await to hear anything more official.
