Kimi at Ferrari 'for life'

Kimi at Ferrari 'for life'

Formula one world champion Kimi Raikkonen has said he would like to remain a Ferrari driver until the end of his career.

The Finn won the world title last season at the final race of the year in Brazil when he topped the podium and McLaren drivers Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton finished third and seventh, respectively.

Raikkonen's chances of taking the drivers crown looked remote just two races before the end of the season when rookie Hamilton led the eventual champion by 17 points with only 20 left on offer.

But Raikkonen won both grands prix in China and at Interlagos to overhaul the Briton and take his maiden championship and has since declared his loyalty to the Italian team that helped him achieve such success.

"Ferrari will be my last team, I'm not interested in going anywhere else," he said.

"It suits me. I have two years on my contract and it may not be my last."

Raikkonen joined Ferrari at the end of the 2006 season from McLaren and has seen a remarkable upturn in fortunes since.

He failed to win a single race last year but still claims his life has remained largely the same despite his new-found fame.

"I wouldn't say winning has changed my life but it is good to get what I have always dreamed of," he continued.

"If there is focus on Lewis getting prizes and Michael Schumacher testing with us, or where Fernando Alonso is going, I'm happy. I have a nice quiet life [and] I've got the trophy they all wanted$1176308.htm
