Ferrari appears likely to shed at least one of its existing drivers.

That is the view of retired double world champion Mika Hakkinen, who thinks the Maranello team is grappling not only with a less than fully competitive 2014 car.

The Finn thinks Ferrari also has a driver problem.

"In my opinion Ferrari is more and more into the situation of eventually replacing one of the two drivers," he said in his latest interview with his sponsor Hermes.

"The comments being made by Fernando Alonso do not sound like someone who will be with Ferrari for much longer.

"And I don't want to say anything against Kimi Raikkonen, except that he is constantly behind his teammate," 45-year-old Hakkinen added.

The former McLaren driver also commented on the 2014 plight of F1's reigning quadruple world champion Sebastian Vettel.

"I do not understand how it is possible that his (Red Bull) car is permanently broken. Incredible," said Hakkinen.
