Räikkönen to leave Ferrari

Kimi Räikkönen

Kimi Räikkönen’s departure from Ferrari at the end of the 2018 Formula 1 season has been officially confirmed. He is to join Alfa-Romeo Sauber on a two-year deal.

As was widely predicted, Charles Leclerc will be his replacement at Ferrari.

The 38-year-old Finn began his second stint at Ferrari in 2014 having left Lotus – but he has failed to win a race since rejoining the Italian team. His last F1 victory was with Lotus in the 2013 Australian Grand Prix.

Räikkönen won the F1 World Championship title for Ferrari in 2007.
