Raikkonen enters his second season with Scuderia Ferrari in 2015 and will be hoping that this season will be a stronger year for him after struggling against former team mate Fernando Alonso last season.

Ferrari have yet to confirm their driver line – up for the opening test of the winter at the Jerez circuit in Spain from February 1 – 4. 

The Italian team will launch their new car which has yet to be name in exactly two weeks’ time on Friday 30th January. Ferrari Chairman, Sergio Marchionne confirmed on Thursday that the team are slightly behind in the design phase of their new car but that this will be sorted out.
