Kimi Raikkonen Lotus-Renault



ZigWheels: Why coming back to Formula 1?
Kimi Raikkonen: The main reason for coming back to Formula 1 was the fact that I never really lost the passion for the sport and the things surrounding it. In a rally you are racing more against the clock and I also did some NASCAR races this year in the United States but I started to miss the racing side of motorsport. That was when I got a call from certain people in Formula 1, and all sorts of things happened. I managed to have a good conversation with Lotus-Renault GP and ended up making a deal with them and I am very happy with that.

ZW: Why did you choose Lotus-Renault GP?

KR: I had two options, either this team or Williams. And everything worked out with Lotus-Renault GP and that’s the way I wanted it to be.

ZW: Have you been following the team this year?
KR: I haven't followed Formula 1 last year but this year I followed formula 1 a little but not really any specific team. I saw the last 20 laps of the Brazilian Grand Prix, cause I knew the deal might come across, but before this I didn’t know if a deal will happen in Formula 1 for next year, so I just watched a few races but no specific team really.
