Ferrari Extend Kimi Raikkonen’s Contract For 2018
It will come as no real surprise that risk-averse Ferrari have renewed the contract of the man called a ‘laggard’ by Ferrari president Marchionne. Of course it keeps Sebastian Vettel happy and that is the number one priority at the Italian stable.
Clearly Sebastians team mate of choice is Kimi, who’s A-Political, Fast enough to play back-up, and won’t challenge the status quo of the clear number one driver situation. There was a lot of speculation regarding his seat being potentially up for grabs with Grosjean, Sainz or Perez looking likely options but they were not to be!
With most seats coming up for grabs at the end of 2018, expect a lot of teams to stick with what they know as the silly season unravels in the next few months.
