Ferrari announced during the first practice day of this weekend's Monza GP that Kimi Raikkonen's contract has been extended by one year. This mean's he's locked into service with the scuderia until the end of 2010, which is the same time Felipe Massa's contract runs out. Terms of the extension weren't disclosed, but the fact that Ferrari re-signed the Iceman means they aren't nearly as worried about his recent form as the rest of the paddock appears to be. It also means that Fernando Alonso can now decide where he wants to go for at least two years and get the silly season officially over with.

      Resign: to quit

      Re-sign: almost the opposite, to extend a previous contract.


      At least it wasn't in the title this time, I nearly flipped out when I saw Alonso or whoever it was would be resigning! ;)

      I think we all know that they kept Kimi for his bubbling personality and lively post-race interviews.

        What? I thought it's for racing snowmobiles with an alias when he should be preparing for the season opener, and deciding the dancers were too crap and putting on a strip show himself?

      Big mistake from Ferrari, they should of had signed in Kubica instead of Kimi, he seems to be loosing his cool and even skill for every race. While Kubica seems to push the hell out of those not up to par BMW's! , he even knows Italian for f* sakes =)

        while i agree mostly w/ what you said, not so regarding his skill. this year, kimi had the fastest lap on 8 of of the last 13 races. hes definitely got the goods; now he just needs to get his head back together. possibly hes still stuck in the clouds after his win last year (regardess of how it happened, its still a win), and doesnt feel the need to prove his mettle.
