Raikkonen could be in the frame for Mercedes

November 19, 2009

The one person I didn’t mention in my last post was Kimi Raikkonen. And there are reasons why this could be attractive to Mercedes. Norbert Haug, Mercedes motorsport chief and someone who would ultimately want to build his influence in the team, would I suspect be in favour of signing Kimi if the price is right (which with Kimi it generally isn’t). I’m sure Norbert would have been fully behind the re-signing of Button, but now McLaren have taken him from under their noses, Kimi, who Norbert knows well, could now make a lot more sense. The only question is whether Mercedes would want to start a rally programme to keep him occupied between races (the answer is no, I’m sure).
