Arrivabene emphasizes good relationship between drivers
In a typically short statement, the Italian outfit Ferrari said on Wednesday: “Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has renewed its technical and racing agreement with Kimi Raikkonen. The driver line-up next season will still consist of the Finnish driver and Sebastian Vettel.”

The Finn initially joined Ferrari in 2007 from McLaren and leftovers the latest driver to have been crowned world champion with the honored Italian team.

At the end of 2009 he retired from F1, and come-back to the Sport in 2012 with lotus F1 team.

Kimi re-joined Ferrari ahead of the 2014 campaign on the back of some impressive performances for Lotus, but he was outshined by then teammate Fernando Alonso even as he has also played a secondary role to Sebastian Vettel this season.

“We believe that extending Kimi’s contract into the next season will provide further stability to the team,” said Ferrari boss Maurizio Arrivabene.

“This has been our guideline, also considering the very good relationship between Kimi and Seb. On our side, this shows our great confidence in him, and I expect this confidence to be well rewarded.”
