Frédéric Vasseur assures that in Hinwil they do not want to change drivers
Despite Ferrari’s young talents, the Finn will decide his future
The rise of Callum Illot, Mick Schumacher and Robert Shwartzman may not be rewarded with a seat in Formula 1 next season, as Ferrari will probably need the two Alfa Romeo wheels and the Swiss team boss, Fred Vasseur, has assured that it will depend on Kimi Räikkönen his continuity in Hinwil in 2021.
Kimi Räikkönen was between 2001 and 2009 on the Formula 1 grid, to return later from 2014 to the present. About to turn 41, the continuity of the 2007 world champion is a mystery.
But as soon as possible, and in the face of the threat of the three aforementioned talents from the Ferrari development academy, the future of the Iceman is safe if it wants to be a third season in a row – fourth in total – in the Alfa Romeo team, as recognized by the team leader, Frédéric Vasseur.
“If all parties are interested and we work well together, it makes sense to continue. It is true that there are some young Ferrari drivers, but Kimi goes first for us,” Vasseur acknowledged in the words published by the Irish medium Formula Spy.
“Knowing what Kimi wants to do next year will be important and then we will see what we want to do to see if we can reach an understanding. In September we will negotiate with our pilots about 2021 and decide together what to do. Right now there are many pilots available in our list “, finished the French.
