Kimi Raikkonen's manager has denied that talks about the Finn returning to Formula One with Red Bull in 2011 are already taking place.

With funding from the energy drink company, the 2007 world champion has signed a one-year deal with Citroen for the full World Rally Championship next year.

And with Sebastian Vettel signed long-term to the Austrian outfit, rumours have suggested that Raikkonen could replace Mark Webber at Red Bull Racing in 2011.

"At this moment there are no negotiations with any teams," the 30-year-old's manager Steve Robertson is quoted as saying by the Dutch website 4mule1.net.

He added: "Currently Kimi is leaving his future open and not making any decisions."
