Kimi meets Flavio at the 'Ring
Wednesday, 10 May 2006
kimiface2.jpgRenault is making a last-minute dash to secure the services of 'iceman' Kimi Raikkonen, according to press reports.

Although the 26-year-old was previously linked more strongly with McLaren or Ferrari for 2007 and beyond, Germany's 'Auto Motor Und Sport' magazine reveals this week that Kimi secretly met with Flavio Briatore at the Nurburgring.

Reportedly, the Renault principal offered Raikkonen - under contract to McLaren but possibly already with a pre-agreement Ferrari deal - an incredible $143 million for four years, or nearly $36m a year...

Kimi was disappointed with the pace of his McLaren last Sunday at the Nurburgring, saying: ''It's not what we want.

''We're just too slow.''


Comments: Oh dear. This is going from tiring to ridiculous.

Renault are not known to give a lot of money to their drivers. They have a tight budget, and they prefer to spend it on the car instead.

This is all speculation without solid proof. Kimi himself has said that he will decide by the end of June, so let 's wait and see. 

Will Kimi beat Alonso in 2013 - 2014 season?
