Actually, Kimi has stated quite a while ago directly in the Finnish press that he has no intention whatsoever to return to F1.

No suprise there. I must say that I like the guy much more these days than I ever did during the F1 days. By the way Kimi is these days (on a good mood and enjoying life) as another Finn I'm very happy for him. And considering what F1 really is these days, WHY would he come back? It just doesn't make any sense.

Very overrated driver, bizarre how some people insist he's the fastest driver in the world. Here are the FACTS of his time as Massa's teammate:

Massa 12
Kimi 5

Massa 9
Kimi 8

Massa 213
Kimi 195

And Massa is about 0.5s a lap slower than Alonso.

Kimi is proof that 95% of F1 don't understand the sport at all. How hard can it be to understand that drivers have "setup" preference that affects their speed.

Kimi "got beat" by Massa, because the car was designed to understeer. NOT because he is a slow driver.
Alonso beats Massa, because they both like an understeering car so Alonso can drive at his absolute limit as too.
