Following a weekend of intense negotiations between the Kimi Raikkonen's management and Lotus owner Gerard Lopez, sources have confirmed that a deal has been put in place that resolves their issues.

Motor racing memorabilia from the Japanese, Indian and Abu Dhabi F1 races are now available at Cricket Collectables

Our team are definitely at the United States GP on Nov 15th-17th at  Circuit of The Americas Austen, once again Motor Racing Collectables will be the priority finishing in Brazil on Nov 24t anyway back to the main point of the blog:

Raikkonen had been persuaded to race in Abu Dhabi after threatening to not do so, Kimi and his management team made it emphatically clear that he would not continue for the United States and Brazil races if matters were not sorted.

Speaking on Friday, when he revealed he had not been paid at all during 2013, Raikkonen has said: "I enjoy racing, I love driving - but a big part of it is business side. Sometimes when that is not dealt with like it should we end up in an unfortunate situation as at present."You have to draw the line somewhere.

It is reported that  on Sunday morning, following more than two days of talks, Lopez and Raikkonen's manager Steve Robertson laid out a plan for moving forward that both parties seem to be  happy with.

As long as the deal is formally signed off by lawyers, and Lotus sticks to the points of the agreement laid out, then Raikkonen will compete in the final two races of the campaign.

Raikkonen's presence will be valuable to the team as it is locked in a big battle with Mercedes and Ferrari for second place in the constructors' championship.

Kimi had a terrible weekend in Abu Dhabi, starting last after his car failed a post-qualifying floor deflection test and then retiring on his first lap.
