37-year-old Finnish star Kimi Raikkonen has secured a new one year extension to his current Ferrari deal, keeping the driver in Scuderia red for his eighth year with the team. Raikkonen's performances have been much improved this season, and with his apparently strong working relationship with team leader Sebastian Vettel seen as an asset to Ferrari, it is perhaps not unexpected to see the driver extend his stay with the championship leading squad. Raikkonen has currently completed in 122 Grand Prix for the Prancing Horse, placing him in third position on the all-time list of appearances with the Scuderia, just behind now Williams driver Felipe Massa on 139 and German legend Michael Schumacher with 179 Ferrari Grand Prix appearances. 2018 will mark his fifth consecutive season following a return to Formula One with Lotus in 2012, however Räikkönen is yet to secure a race victory in his second stint with team. The last race victory for Kimi Räikkönen was at the 2013 Australian Grand Prix, driving for Lotus Renault.
