Kimi 'candidate for Red Bull?'

SWOPPING WEBBER FOR THE ICEMAN? Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen could be in the running for seat with Red Bull in 2014 as Mark Webber’s future in F1 seems uncertain.

LONDON, England - Kimi Raikkonen is "a candidate" to replace Mark Webber at Red Bull, team owner Dietrich Mateschitz has admitted.

Following its "Multi-21" team orders affair, Red Bull denied speculation that Webber's role as team mate to World champion Sebastian Vettel was now untenable.

Mateschitz, a known strong supporter of 36-year-old Webber, agrees that the F1 veteran could leave at the end of his 2013 contract.


Mateschitz told Speed Week: "Whether he retires, only he will choose, but Mark is definitely a candidate for 2014. He is always welcome with us. So would be a quick junior such as Vergne or Ricciardo from the Toro Rosso team.

"Sorry, I know it's a diplomatic answer which leaves everything open, but that's how it is. Everything else is pure speculation."

Mateschitz also mentioned Raikkonen as potentially in the running for a 2014 seat.

Often mentioning the 2007 World champion in interviews, Mateschitz is an open admirer of Raikkonen, having sponsored the 33-year-old's two-year rallying foray in 2010 and 2011.

Contradicting April Fool rumours that Raikkonen had announced his retirement, Mateschitz said: "Kimi is cool and fast and always a candidate."

Webber had "already been in contact" with Porsche officials, regarding a 2014 prototype team for the German automaker at Le Mans.
