Parr amused by Kimi 'tittle-tattle'

Williams chairman Adam Parr remains coy over the team's 2012 driver line-up, but admits some of the reports regarding the Kimi Räikkönen deal are "absolute drivel"

Williams shareholder Toto Wolff admitted last week that they are in negotiations with the 2007 World Champion and the latest paddock rumours claim the team are awaiting upon investment from Qatar to help fund the deal.

Parr, though, remains tight-lipped about talks with Räikkönen and says some of the rumours have brought a smile to his face.

"I read stuff and I just want to laugh because people construct these conspiracy theories from tittle-tattle and nonsense, and it's absolute drivel on all fronts," he said.

"I understand everything people are saying, but unfortunately it doesn't mean you can draw conclusions from it."

Parr appears in no hurry to confirm next year's line-up, stating it will be done "as soon as we can".

He added: "We have not made a decision yet about the future. When we have we will discuss it with the people concerned and then we'll announce it."
