Kimi Raikkonen's Red Bull move breaks down

Kimi Raikkonen's manager reveals that talks over a proposed move to Red Bull next season have broken down.

Kimi Raikkonen's talks over a proposed move to Red Bull next season have broken down, according to his manager.

Raikkonen's current deal with Lotus expires at the end of this season, and the Finn had been strongly tipped to replace the retiring Mark Webber at Red Bull.

However, manager Steve Robertson revealed that Raikkonen will almost certainly not be driving for Red Bull next season, although he is confident that he will remain in Formula 1.

"Talks broke down. We haven't spoken for a little while and it's clear Kimi won't be driving for Red Bull in 2014," Robertson told BBC Sport.

"Kimi's a free agent. He still has options out there. There's a lot of things happening behind the scenes and I'm pretty confident he will be in F1 next year."

The 2007 World Champion has already left the sport once, joining the World Rally Championships in 2009 before returning to drive for Lotus in 2012.
