F1: Kimi Returns With Lotus-Renault

The number of world champions on the grid next year will increase by one after Lotus-Renault confirmed that 2007 winner Kimi Raikonen will return to the sport with them.

This now means that the winner of every championship since the turn of.the millennium will be on the grid for 2012.

How will Kimi fare? Pretty well I guess. Whilst Petrov has had a half-decent season this year there's no question of him being in the same league as the Iceman.

Will Lotus give him a car capable of competing with the best? I'm not so sure. I'm expecting ferocious battles between Kimi and Michael Schumacher behind the top three teams next year though...
