Former world champion Kimi Raikkonen will return to Formula One in 2012 after signing a two-year deal with Lotus Renault GP.

The 32-year-old Finn, who secured the drivers' title four years ago and won 18 races with Ferrari, quit F1 in 2009 to pursue a career in rallying.

He had talks with Williams earlier in the year, but they broke down, so is happy to agree a contract with Lotus.

Double world champion Sebastian Vettel is 1/1 to make it three titles in a row in 2012 while Lewis Hamilton can be backed at 5/1 to win next year's drivers' championship, Jenson Button 6/1 and Mark Webber 12/1.

Raikkonen said: "I'm delighted to be coming back to Formula 1 after a two-year break, and I'm grateful to Lotus Renault GP for offering me this opportunity.

"I can't deny the fact that my hunger for F1 has recently become overwhelming.

"It was an easy choice to return with Lotus Renault GP as I have been impressed by the scope of the team's ambition. Now I'm looking forward to playing an important role in pushing the team to the very front of the grid."
