On Wednesday Ferrari made it official that Kimi Raikkonen will return to Ferrari and take over the seat that Felipe Massa will vacate after the 2013 season ends. He has signed a two year deal with Ferrari.
For Raikkonen, the 20-time Formula 1 winner, it is his second stint at Ferrari. He raced for the team from 2007 to 2009 and won the World Championship in 2007 in a season where he won six races. During the 2008 and 2009 seasons with Ferrari Raikkonen won only three times and when Fernando Alonso moved to Ferrari for the 2010 season Raikkonen was the odd man out.
“I am really happy to be returning to Maranello where I previously spent three fantastic and very successful years,” Raikkonen told the Ferrari website. "I have so many memories of my time at Ferrari, memories which have stayed with me these past years, first and foremost, winning the world championship title in 2007, which was really unforgettable. I can’t wait to be driving a Prancing Horse car again and to reacquaint myself with so many people with whom I had such close links, as well as working with Fernando, whom I consider a great driver, in order to bring the team the success it deserves.”
