James Allen, one of the most respectable F1 pundits, revealed this afternoon that a deal between Raikkonen and Ferrari is unlikely.
From James Allen:
My Finnish sources sticking to their line that a deal for Kimi at Ferrari will always be unlikely while Montezemolo is in charge
Allen is not known to report bogus news, and he has to be the most credible source out of all that reported the Raikkonen-Ferrari piece.
Finnish media, however, are sticking to their side of the story, with more and more sites claiming they have inside information about the deal, claiming they are 100% sure the contract is done.
The most reputable journalists and pundits are on holiday at the moment, as are most racing teams. With the Belgian GP arriving in 2 weeks, further info is likely to emerge in the next few days as the F1 paddock returns to action.
