Kimi Raikkonen to leave Ferrari at the end of the season

Ferrari have announced the departure of Kimi Raikkonen at the end of the current season and the 2007 Formula 1 champion has already revealed that a two-year deal with Sauber is in place. The 38-year-old, who has driven for Ferrari in two different spells, will return to the team he started his career with in 2001 while Charles Leclerc will take his place at Ferrari.

The Finn took a two-year break from F1 in 2010 so as to race in the World Rally Championship but returned to the sport with Lotus two years later. He rejoined Ferrari in 2014 but failed to win another drivers’ championship.
