After a somewhat inconsistent season, and rumours aplenty, Ferrari have confirmed that Kimi Raikkonen will be kept on the team for the 2016 Formula One season. The team issued a statement on Wednesday stating that "Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has renewed its technical and racing agreement with Kimi Raikkonen." And that, "The driver line-up next season will still consist of the Finnish driver and Sebastian Vettel." The reclusive Finn has endured a rather forgettable season, one which has been plagued with bad luck, inconsistent performances, poor decision making from both himself and the team and a teammate who has rekindled the spirits of the Scuderia with two race wins to Raikkonen's nil. However, despite his recent on-track struggles, Raikkonen remains positive and seems delighted by his new contract signing by stating, "... to be able to stay another year at Ferrari means that the dream goes on... I am more committed than ever and I want to say thank you to the people who gave me this chance". With the assurance of a race seat for next season, Kimi will no doubt have his full attention focused solely on Spa-Francorchamps after the four week mid-season break. A track that he is renowned for having strong performances, the Finnish driver will be looking for a strong result to not only show the team they've made the right decision by re-signing him for the following year, but to get his own season back on track after a turbulent year so far.
