Speculation linking Kimi Raikkonen to a return to McLaren has increased after the Finn's management team were seen visiting the team's Woking base.

ITV-F1 reports that Steve and David Robertson visited the McLaren Technology Centre on Wednesday as guests of team principal Martin Whitmarsh, increasing talk that Raikkonen could be set to rejoin the team he competed for from 2002-2006.

Raikkonen himself has previously said that he is only interested in an F1 drive that would give him the chance to fight for race wins and a second title, with McLaren appearing to be the best option of those drives still available for next season.

However, the former champion is believed to be one of a number of possible options for the team, with new champion Jenson Button having been linked with a seat and the suggestion that Heikki Kovalainen could yet retain his drive despite a difficult campaign where he managed only twelfth in the championship standings.
