There is a nice piece over at BBC by Andrew benson about the reality of Kimi Raikkonen’s retention at Ferrari. The point is, it may not be a reality at all given the current situation.
The article does a nice job of unpacking the details and enigma that is Kimi and it shares some comments from Ferrari bosses about the likelihood of Raikkonen remaining at Ferrari.
[quote_box_center]”Kimi’s future is in his own hands,” says Ferrari’s no-nonsense, straight-talking new president, Sergio Marchionne.[/quote_box_center]
The question I’d like to ask here is IF Ferrari decide to part ways with Kimi again, who should they go after? Keep in mind that Ferrari aren’t like other teams in that they normally haven’t gone for the one veteran and one rookie format. They like two veterans at the wheels.
Many say Bottas but he’s struggling to beat Massa (who they let go) and others say Esteban Gutierrez is the likely guy but is he? Why not Nico Hulkenberg or is there merit to stealing Daniel Ricciardo?
