The Iceman Cometh!

HE’s BAAAAACCCCKKKKKK!!! As in thee ORIGINAL ICEMAN, nee Kimi Räikkönen is returning to Formula 1 after a two-year sabbatical; which will see The ‘Kimster drag his Oomphlaat’s to the newly rechristened Lotus 3.0 F1 Team, which was previously Lotus Renault GP, formerly Renault, Benetton and Toleman; Yi-yi-yi!

As Lotus F1 Team 3.0 will sport an all new Driver lineup for 2012, with Räikkönen being partnered by reigning GP2 Champion Romain Grosjean, as wither The Mad Rooskie, aka Vitaly ‘VO5 Petrov who was given his walking papers by the Enstone-based squad.

As Petrov’s now scrambling to find a remaining ’12 F1 seat, with Team Willy, (Williams) and Hispania being the only truly open rides left. Although I’d enjoy seeing him send Jarno Truli packing from Caterham F1, (Which should solve the Italian’s distain for the Loti’s power steering...) and would give Tony Fernandez possible access into Mother Russia...
