Not a fan of the team but glad to see Raikonen coming back and a hungrier Raikonen could do great things and I'm looking forward to seeing 6 world champions on the grid next season.

Williams should take SENNA and SUTIL

If they can bring enough cash that is!.

This in my opinion would be a great driver combo for a team looking to build for the coming seasons!.

Surely he will be more competitive in F1 than in WRC. And for rallies he had to pay for Citroen... Now he (and his managers) can get some salaries again.

Maybe we (Finns) can get also championship points again as our other F1 driver has not scored in last 2 seasons.

Bullyer ' My car is brilliant it must be a poor driver'
Kimi: 'mmghmjmmk mmdmfgmmm .. gtrk*'
Engineer: 'Ice cream anyone ..ouch, oh well looks like Kimi has his, anyone else' :) :) :)

Looks like Frank is having all the Walls Icecream, and Smirnoff stickers removed. :) Maybe Rubens will still be with Williams in 2012 after all.

Not a great surprise to me. Kimi has been iching to get back into F1 for a while. If rumours are true, that the Williams deal fell through because he wanted a stake in Williams as part of the deal seems to show that he is looking forward to what he will do when his driving career comes to an end. So it makes me wonder with the speed of this deal that maybe Kimi has been able to buy a stake in Lotus Renault. However, this to me seems to me be a big dent into the prospect of Kubica being able to race in 2012. This deal means that either or both Petrov or Senna will get the second seat above Grosjean because of the sponsorship money they can bring into the sport. Petrov I would not be surprised to see at Williams over Sutil because of the sponsorship he could bring to the team. Though he is more likely to go to Virgin as it appears to becoming a Russian state team.

Petrovs manager, when questioned about LRGP's driver lineup for next year said, 'it depends on if the owners and management can reach agreement', with a hint of suggestion that Mr Boulliers position as principle isn't totally secure.
