F1:KIMI RAIKKONEN is on Red Bull’s radar
By BEN HUNT
KIMI RAIKKONEN is on Red Bull’s radar — if fuming Mark Webber quits Formula One at the end of this season.
Webber was livid after team-mate Sebastian Vettel ignored team orders not to overtake the Aussie to win the Malaysian Grand Prix.
Webber, whose contract with the team expires at the end of the season, refused to be drawn on his future after the Sepang showdown.
But team owner Dietrich Mateschitz has revealed they are interested in Lotus’ Raikkonen.
The billionaire Austrian said: “Kimi is cool and fast and always a candidate.”
Meanwhile, Webber has been linked with a switch to racing sportcars with Porsche.
And Mateschitz admits he does not know what is in store for the 36-year-old.
Mateschitz said: “Whether he retires, only he will choose, but Mark is definitely a candidate for 2014.”
