Ferrari re-signs Raikkonen for 2016

Ferrari re-signs Raikkonen for 2016 - News

Ferrari has finally ended the ongoing speculation encompassing the uncertain future of Kimi Raikkonen for the Formula 1 2016 season. More than a few names have been mentioned to take Kimi's seat including Nico Hulkenberg, Daniel Ricciardo and notably Vatteri Bottas of Williams.
It looks certain for the future of at least the 2016 season that Kimi will continue to partner Vettel in the Ferrari pit.

"What can I say. For me, to be able to stay another year at Ferrari means that the dream goes on," said Raikkonen.
"The Scuderia is my family, as I always said, it's here I want to end my career.
"I am more committed than ever and I want to say thank you to the people who gave me this chance.
"Also, a big thank you goes to all my Ferrari fans, for their continuous support".

Recent Formula 1 racing has seen Raikkonen being out performed by Vettel, even taking less than half of the total points score of his team mate of just 76 compared to Vettels 160.  A sole podium spot in Bahrain (second place) has been the result on numerous mistakes in qualifying which is why his contract renewal has been subject to much speculation. Ferrari do not like to lose, and we can only imagine they are hoping for a more focused season for next year. This now means that the expected replacement for kimis seat, Valteri Bottas will be staying put at Williams next year.
