 Ferrari: abandoning Raikkonen, Fuzheng Lai Ke Le Ke is for long-term consideration.


Before the Singapore Grand Prix, Ferrari decided not to use Kimi Raikkonen at the end of the season, but to promote Charles Leclerk, who joined his young driver program in 2016, as a new teammate of Sebastian Vettel in the 2009 season.

The 20 year old has won the GP3 and F2 Championships in the past two years. This year, under the arrangement of Ferrari, he promoted to F1 and represented Sauber.

As early as this season rumors have been circulating that former Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne plans to get Leclerk back on the right foot next year. Despite Marchionnes sudden death in August, his successor, Louis Camilleri, had a very good relationship with Raikkonen.

In his first meeting with the media during the Italian Grand Prix, Camilleri said the team had not yet made a decision on the drivers choice, and that he would discuss it with Aliva Bene before the team would make the most of it. In the end, Ferrari decided to change the team next season, and for the first time in the teams history appointed relatively inexperienced young drivers.

My job is to think about the future of the team and thats the reason for that decision, Aliva Beinet said at a news conference in Singapore on Friday. When you make decisions about drivers, you have to think about the future of the team.

This has nothing to do with my respect for Kimi, and I respect him personally and as a driver. But I think we made the right decisions for ourselves and for him. He didnt even say that I hope you can change your mind. He is a professional driver.

Raikkonen revealed at a news conference the day before that he was informed of the decision by Ferrari during the Monza match, and he immediately started negotiations with Sauber and signed a lightning contract, but also a two-year contract.

Aliva Bene revealed that the Finns have nothing and understand the decision after learning of Ferraris decision. At the same time, the Italians also said that Ferrari, when accepting Leclerk as a member of the drivers college, worked out plans for him to participate in F1 until 2022.

Charles Leclerk is not a big surprise. He is one of the most talented drivers in F1, said the Italian. Thank God he grew up under our wings and I hope he can continue his career with us at least until 2022. I signed his first contract with Ferrari driver Academy in November 2016 or November 2015. In that contract, weve designed, shown determination, signed, and written down his future in F1, just as we agreed with Giovinaz. However, the racer agreement signed by Ferrari is only for the 2019 season. In a media interview Thursday, although he was confident that he would perform well, he also admitted that there was a risk of abandonment if he failed to deliver a satisfactory transcript.
