We slightly improve a lower bound on the linkedness of polytopes. This results in exact values for the minimal linkedness of 7-, 10- and 13-dimensional polytopes.We analyze in detail linkedness of d-polytopes on at most (6d + 7)/5 vertices. In that case, a tight lower bound on minimal linkedness is derived, and examples meeting this lower bound are constructed. These examples contain a class of examples due to Gallivan.DFG, GRK 1408, Methoden für diskrete Strukture
