May 29 - Kimi Raikkonen looks set to keep his seat at Ferrari into 2017.

That is the claim of arguably the most respected Italian journalist in the paddock, Pino Allievi.

"At the moment, Kimi's place at Ferrari is safe," the La Gazzetta dello Sport correspondent told the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat.

Reports had suggested Ferrari might be looking to replace the Finn, amid speculation Nico Rosberg or Daniel Ricciardo may be in the frame.

"I read a new name every day," said Kimi's current teammate, Sebastian Vettel, making it clear he wants the 2007 world champion to get a new deal.

Allievi has some good news for German Vettel.

"I know that, right now, Ferrari are not considering anyone else. They will look at it in July and if Kimi is the same then as he has been in the first five races, he should continue next year as well," he explained.
