Yet another member of Kimi Raikkonen's entourage has dismissed speculation the Finn is set to leave Ferrari at the end of 2009.

"That stuff is pure rubbish," his manager Steve Robertson is quoted as saying by the Finnish broadcaster MTV3.

He said the rumours, suggesting 29-year-old Raikkonen might switch to world rally while his seat is filled by Fernando Alonso, are "groundless".

"I think a lot of it comes from Spanish journalists but there is no truth in it," Robertson insists.

Indeed, the latest reports are emerging from Spain, as the sports newspaper Marca claims that Robertson and his father David were seen in the motor homes of Brawn, Toyota and Renault last weekend at the Nurburgring.
