Former Formula One world champion Kimi Raikkonen has set the rumor mills buzzing with his visit to the Williams F1 team’s headquarters in England.

The Finn won the world championship with Ferrari in 2007 but left F1 at the end of 2009 to participate in the World Rally Championship.

Driving a privately entered Citroen, Raikkonen has so far struggled to match the pace of the front running drivers in the WRC, with a couple of fourth place finishes being his best.

Raikkonen made his F1 debut with Sauber in 2001 as a 21-year-old before driving for McLaren in 2002 where he came close to winning the world title in 2003 and 2005.
