    @katederby: You speak my mind, everytime haha. Dunno how, buy you do. lol.


    This would be a great move for Kimi! It would be a great opportunity for him to win the title again.. Many say Vettel is faster than Kimi? Then let’s see if they are in the same car. I bet Kimi would be quicker.


    I don’t see this happening. Red Bull is having big issues with team orders at the moment, what do you think will happen if you put Vettel and Raikkonen in the same team? Exactly… I just think it’s a smart move from Red Bull to shift the attention from the “Multi21” to something positive.

    Would be a great line-up by the way: Vettel and Raikkonen. Vettel would probably faster in quali, but in the race it’s too close to call.


    RedBull could afford to pay Kimi a giant salary like his old Ferrari one.

    Look at the F1 Fanatic user favourites:


    1. Button
    2. Raikkonen
    3. Hamilton
    4. Alonso
    5. Webber
    6. Vettel

    Look how popular Hamilton is – and it’s acknowledged/suggested in the article that his move to Mercedes caused more people to show an interest in Mercedes and bump them up the F1 Fanatic users favourites – moving them above RedBull.

    RedBull could sign the second most popular driver (on this site)(and one of the most popular drivers amongst casual F1 fans), that would certainly bring some new fans to the team – and if they see that as a good signing for selling caps, shirts, energy juice then it’s a good move for them.

    Doubt it will happen though.


    I don’t see it happening. Not only is Raikkonen happy at Lotus, and could have a very competitive car this year, which would only improve his relationship with the team, but I believe that Webber will stay with Red Bull for one more year.

    With such an extensive rule change going on, it would be foolish for Webber to leave when he could luck into the new car suiting him more so than the current regulations.


    Come to think of it, though I’d love the idea that Kimi would be in Red Bull and get another shot at the title, I’m starting to think that Webber is a little unappreciated. I mean think about it, I think he deserves better treatment, and I wonder if a driver like Kimi would accept something like that. I think Kimi too would recognized the kind of racer Webber is, don’t you think?
