Kimi Raikkonen sure Ferrari will achieve success under Arrivabene

Written by  Jan 01, 2019

Kimi Raikkonen has backed team boss Maurizio Arrivabene to lead Ferrari back to championship success in Formula 1.

The 'Iceman' has been at the Scuderia during two key spells in their recent history, he was the man chosen to replace Michael Schumacher in 2007 and would win what remains their last Drivers' Championship that year.

Then he returned in 2014 just as new leadership was taking over and would help bring Ferrari back to the front of the grid and the main challengers to the leading Mercedes.

"When I arrived there was Jean Todt at the head of the team, he remains a great character and a friend, even now playing a different role," Raikkonen told Sky Italia

"After him, there were several team principals, I do not even know how many, [but] now with Maurizio Arrivabene, it is a great moment, he is the right person to bring back the Ferrari the team deserves, and I owe him a lot for my return."

2018 would mark Kimi's final year in red, however, as youngster Charles Leclerc impressed in his rookie season with Sauber and earned a rapid promotion to the Italian team for 2019.

"I wish the team all the best, certainly some other driver will win," Raikkonen continued. 

"Maybe in the near future. Every result or record is not made to last long, there will always be someone who can beat it. Life works like this."
