As much as I am a big Lotus fan, and appreciate that they gave Kimi the opportunity to return to F1. I think the cold hard fact is that Lotus, at the moment are simply not up to winning a world championship. The car is there or there about's, however like many times in the past, Lotus/Renault can not develop the car at the same rate as the "big teams" However, the more worrying fact seems to be that when Lotus DO have the fastest car i.e Bahrain, Spain & Hungary. They show a lack of ability to take control of the race and make the critical calls that they have to, to go forward and win the race.
It pains me to say it, but if Raikkonen's primary ambition with his return to racing is to win races & ultimately another WDC then I feel that he may have to look at a return to McLaren or (god forbid) Ferrari. Although, can not see him being allowed to win at Ferrari while Fernando is there. And a move to McLaren would seem to hinge on whether Lewis puts money & showbiz ahead of pure racing.
