HELSINKI, Finland - 2007 Formula 1 champion Kimi Raikkonen has decided to quit Lotus and return to Ferrari in 2014, according to major Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat.

The Finn, whose two-year rallying sabbatical began after Ferrari ended his contract and signed Fernando Alonso for 2010, had been more strongly linked with a move from Lotus to Red Bull.

Ilta-Sanomat said its report was based on the information of its "sources".


The newspaper added that Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz was keen to sign Ferrari's current No.1 Fernando Alonso for 2014, despite the Spaniard's long contract.
Many in the paddock, however, see the prospect of Alonso's pairing with reigning multiple World champion Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull as highly unlikely.

Daniel Juncadella, a young Spanish driver being linked with a future at the Williams team, said: "I was surprised by these (media) reports."

"It's quite hard to believe," he told Russia's Championat. "Of course he would have a very good chance to become World champion again if he was at Red Bull - but we'll see."
