Kimi Raikkonen's manager has played down reports linking the Finn with a move to Red Bull Racing.

Earlier this week it was rumoured that contact had been made between the 30-year-old's management and the energy drink owned team, despite the fact that Mark Webber was recently put under contract to be Sebastian Vettel's ongoing teammate in 2010.

"There is only a connection (with Red Bull) as a beverage partner," Raikkonen's manager Steve Robertson told the Finnish broadcaster MTV3.

After breaking his 2010 contract with Ferrari, the 2007 world champion is linked with teams including Toyota and McLaren.

"We are talking with several teams and Red Bull is not among them," Robertson added.
