Anybody see Maahk Webbah on Top Gear last night.
Thankfully for him he beat Seb by almost 1 second, but was 3/10th behind Lewis.

I saw that episode last week... He's pretty funny / laid back now that he's leaving F1.
"will you miss Seb?"....... long pause much laughing

Aug.14 (GMM) 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen has decided to return to Ferrari next year, the major Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat has reported this week.
The Finn, whose two-year rallying sabbatical began after Ferrari ended his contract and signed Fernando Alonso for 2010, had been more strongly linked with a move from Lotus to Red Bull.
Ilta-Sanomat said its report was based on the information of its "sources".
The newspaper added that Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz is keen to sign Ferrari's current number 1 Fernando Alonso for 2014, despite the Spaniard's long contract.
Many in the paddock, however, see the prospect of Alonso's pairing with reigning multiple world champion Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull as highly unlikely.
"I was surprised by these (media) reports," admitted Daniel Juncadella, a young Spanish driver who is being linked with a future at the Williams team.
"It's quite hard to believe," he told Russia's Championat. "Of course he would have a very good chance to become world champion again if he was at Red Bull -- but we'll see."

Me neither. Ferrari don't seem too keen either:

The thing I like about Kimi now, compared to Kimi in his former F1 career is that he's not stifled by the corporate nature of McLaren or Ferrari.

very true.

and, with it being silly season, and Kimi hardly ever giving press talks, anyone can make up a story, claim it is true, and run with it. It isn't likely Kimi will make an effort to come forward & confirm, deny or even acknowledge

Kimi quit on Ferrari after winning the 2007 title. He didn't seem to care or to drive hard. Can't see him going back and prospering. Because of how he behaved at Ferrari, basically pocketing the paycheck without making much of an effort to earn it, I think Kimi is a risky hire. He's a delicate flower who needs to be treated -- or perhaps more precisely, not treated -- the right way. Lotus seems like a good fit, even if they're short on money.

Red Bull has opted for Daniel Ricciardo.
