Kimi Raikkonen to take part ownership in Sauber after 2019 in a middle ground worked out between all stakeholders.

Reports in Finland now suggest that, Raikkonen could indeed move to Sauber next season, as a driver and a part owner. He would drive the Sauber for maybe a season and then opt for a more background role with the team.


If Kimi Räikkönen’s second Ferrari career comes to a close at the end of this season as expected, it will be a great blow to the millions of Kimi fans around the world. But it’s time – overdue, in fact – for him to be replaced in 2019, probably by a driver not much more than half his age: Charles Leclerc.

In the sort of dominant on-track performance usually associated with his famous father, Mick Schumacher successfully clinched a sweep of all three races at this weekend’s round of the FIA Formula 3 European championship at the Nurburgring.

“I am very happy with my victory and with my great car. My team has done a great job,” he said after taking his fifth win of the season. “In the race, we had two safety car interventions and I had two good restarts. Every time I managed to pull away from Robert, which was important.”
