Italy - Kimi Raikkonen looks set to keep his place at Ferrari in 2017, according to the latest specialist reports from Italy.

Although other drivers have been linked with the Finn's place, his podium in Austria earlier in July 2016 and Sebastian Vettel's DNF (did not finish) means the pair are now equal on points after nine races this year.

No replacement

La Gazzetta dello Sport says Ferrari will take its decision on Raikkonen within July 2016, indicating that it might fall in the 36-year-old's favour.

Ferrari test driver Marc Gene agrees.

"It is likely that Kimi will continue. I believe it anyway, in part because there don't seem to be any clear replacements for him on the market," he told the Spanish broadcaster Movistar.
