Today it became known that the world champion of 2007 – Kimi Raikkonen has signed a two-year contract with the team Lotus Renault GP, although before that there were a lot of rumors that the Finnish driver could sign a contract with the team Williams. Recall Raikkonen left F1 in 2009 – a year before finishing his contract with Ferrari. Spanish bank Santander has agreed to pay a penalty Kimi to put in its place in the Scuderia two-fold world champion – Fernando Alonso. The next two years, Kimi Raikkonen held in the World Rally Championship, which has not made any serious achievements, not counting the points earned at various stages. But on his return to Formula 1 Finnish pilot always spoke very evasive. But now the question arises as to who will partner Raikkonen in 2012. In addition, the network appeared rumors about the possible resignation of Eric Boullier – the current head of Lotus Renault GP, for allowing discord within the team, as well as the poor results at the end of the season. On the future of Beaulieu and possibly Petrov decision will be made by the Board of Directors of the team, which includes, inter alia, the founders of the investment fund Genii Capital – Eric Lux and Gerard Lopez.
