Maurizio Arrivabene has indicated Ferrari intends to keep Kimi Raikkonen at the team beyond 2016.
The 36-year-old Finn’s contract is expiring, and names including Nico Rosberg and Daniel Ricciardo have been linked with the seat.
Sebastian Vettel, however, publicly wants Raikkonen to stay.
When asked to name the ideal teammate for German Vettel in 2017, boss Arrivabene answered: “I’ll tell you next year.
“We have the ideal pairing, with both of them pushing forward. What more do we want?” he told the Swiss newspaper Blick.
