For Raikkonen it marks a return to Ferrari, with whom he won the world championship in 2007, after the Finn rejoined Formula One in 2012 with Lotus following a two-year absence.

"I am really happy to be returning to Maranello where I previously spent three fantastic and very successful years," said Raikkonen.

Raikkonen will replace Felipe Massa, who is leaving Ferrari at the end of the current season.
