Ferrari president delivers update on Kimi Raikkonen situation
Luca Di Montezemolo confirms Ferrari will make a decision about their driver line-up in coming days amid Kimi Raikkonen reports
Luca Di Montezemolo has confirmed that Ferrari will make a decision about their 2014 driver line-up in the coming days amid intense speculation that Kimi Raikkonen is set for a sensational return to the team.
The 33-year-old Finn, currently at Lotus, is understood to be on the verge of joining the team whom he won the world title with in 2007 in a move that would end Felipe Massa’s spell at Ferrari.
And although he would not be coaxed into confirming an agreement to re-sign Raikkonen has already been reached, the Ferrari president said an announcement is imminent.
“We will take a decision in the next [few] days, and we haven’t made any kind of decision yet,” Di Montezemolo is quoted as saying by the Independent.
“We haven’t signed any contract with anybody. We will talk with Massa and then we will decide.
“Now is the time to make a decision.”
“What happened in the past with Kimi? We won a world championship.
“First of all, Kimi is a good driver. For us it was a big satisfaction to win with him the first championship with the new team without Michael [Schumacher], without Ross [Brawn].
“I think there are also the possibilities of some other drivers but there is also the possibility as last year that we decide to continue with Felipe. We haven’t taken any kind of decision yet at all.”
