Another day, another Formula 1 rumor. Today it’s in regards to Kimi Raikonnen’s contract with Scuderia Ferrari for the 2016 Formula 1 season.
According to FOX Sports, Raikonnen is poised to resign with Ferrari for 2016. Additionally, Williams is also said to have agreed to release Valteri Bottas to the team for a significant sum of cash beyond 2016, a rumor the Finnish racing driver has denied.
“Obviously there have been some annoying rumors,” Bottas said. “Those are not true and they are not fair for Williams and not fair for Kimi.”
“Before there are any facts we just need to wait and see what happens,” he added.
Ferrari is expected to announce Kimi’s contract extension, along with an extension of technical boss James Allison’s contract, at the upcoming Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
