Posted on Author Keith Collantine

Kimi R??ikk??nen has strongly denied rumours he is considering an F1 return with Renault in 2011.

He told Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat:

I am very disappointed with how they have used my name for their own marketing. I have never even seriously considered driving for Renault, and I can assure you that I am 100 per cent sure that I will not drive for Renault next season.
