Kimi's visit to Williams downplayed

Kimi Räikkönen's manager has downplayed the former World Champion's recent visit to the Williams factory

Speculation is rife that Räikkönen, a former Sauber, McLaren and Ferrari driver, is set to make a return to Formula One with Williams after spending two seasons in the World Rally Championship.

Reports claim the Finn visited the Williams factory in Grove between the Belgian and Italian Grands Prix and many believe it is just a matter of time before a deal between him and the team is confirmed.

However, his team manager Steve Robertson has moved to play down the speculation.

"At the end of the day people know Kimi visited Williams, but there's nothing more to say apart from that," Robertson told "There is nothing more to report."

He also refused to confirm or deny that talks had taken place in recent weeks, but added that they 'will make a comment about their future motorsport plans when they feel it is suitable to do so'.
