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.

  • Jazzi: "... so far in 2018"? What a laugh ?. Its pitiful to see a former world champion, superb driver and thoroughly pleasant chap get treated so shoddily. Respect to the Iceman for maintaining his class and dignity amidst Ferrari's disgraceful practices. They self-destructed last season, poetic justice some may say. If so, the implosion may be even worse this year because Kimi is genuinely competive. He out-qualified Seb in Melbourne, and in the last 2 qualifying sessions, he was only edged off pole by Seb in the final flying rounds of Q3. Yet, he still gets screwed by the Ferrari strategist in the races. Pathetic! View Post
