A proposed move to take Kimi Raikkonen to Red Bull for the 2014 Formula One season has broken down, according to the Finn's manager Steve Robertson.
Speculation was rife that Raikkonen would leave Lotus at the end of his deal this year to fill the spot which will be vacated by Mark Webber, who announced he was quitting Red Bull to join Porsche's sportscar programme.
However, Robertson confirmed that is now not a viable option.
"Talks broke down," Robertson told BBC Sport. "We haven't spoken for a little while and it's clear Kimi won't be driving for Red Bull in 2014."
Raikkonen was vying for the place alongside Toro Rosso duo Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, with the former now thought to be the frontrunner to move to Red Bull next year.
The future of Raikkonen, meanwhile, is still up in the air and he may now opt to extend his deal with Lotus.
"Kimi's a free agent. He still has options out there," Robertson said.
"There's a lot of things happening behind the scenes and I'm pretty confident he will be in F1 next year."
On the possibility of joining Ferrari, Robertson added: "Until they confirm their seats, my job is to speak to all the teams and see what's available."
