Kimi Raikkonen has wished Ferrari's new generation of drivers well.

The Finn has lost his place at Ferrari for next year to Charles Leclerc, the 20-year-old that Raikkonen now replaces at Sauber.

"I know a little about them. They are good young guys. I've spoken to Charles a few times and I hope that he does well," Kimi told Italy's La Repubblica.

"I think he has the potential, although it has become really difficult for him. But it doesn't concern me anymore," he said.
