Raikkonen asks Lotus for rally Finland permission

Kimi Raikkonen has revealed he would like to contest August's rally of Finland.

F1's 2007 world champion returned from world rallying to Grand Prix racing this year.

"Of course I wanted to do better. But I'm not finished. I want to go back, whether for my career or after I don't know," the 32-year-old told Motorsport News, according to the official WRC website.

Earlier, Raikkonen admitted he had sidelined his rallying career for now in order to concentrate on F1. Before the 2011 season, Lotus' (then Renault) regular driver Robert Kubica was seriously injured in a rally crash, and is still yet to return to the sport.

"I'd like to do rally Finland this season as it fits with the calendar but you'll have to ask the team if it fits in my contract," Raikkonen said.
