No.  See the release notes[1]

"Fedora Core does not include the kernel-source package provided by
older versions since only the kernel-devel package is required now to
build external modules."

Ah, you are correct.  The latest source is available from the
updates-source repo. I tried installing the source using:

# yum --enablerepo=updates-source install kernel-$(uname -r).src
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories

Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: kernel-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.src
Nothing to do

I don't know why this fails.
