Kimi will thrive without Alonso

Kimi Raikkonen will shine at Ferrari this season without Fernando Alonso according to former team mate Felipe Massa.

Massa was replaced by Raikkonen at the Maranello based outfit last season but endured an extremely tough return to Ferrari in 2014 while Massa had great success in his first season with the Williams Martini Racing Team.

The Brazilian feels that Raikkonen will work better without Alonso at the team after the Spaniard opted to return to McLaren who embark on a new partnership with Honda.

Massa believes that Raikkonen’s new team mate Sebastian Vettel will also prove to be beneficial to the team who have undertaken major management changes over the winter. Massa is not the only one to think as new Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene feels that Raikkonen is happier with how the team is working now.
