Kimi Raikkonen will be seen in Sauber colours next season after he announced that he would be joining his boyhood team for 2 years.
Raikkonen’s departure from Ferrari transpired as Marchionne had set his eyes on Leclerc and wanted to get him to Maranello as soon as possible.
Reports had surfaced before the Monza GP that Kimi could make way for the rookie and days later the switch was confirmed.
Now, ever since the announcement, Kimi has looked far more relaxed, showcasing more emotion than earlier and just enjoying his last phase with Ferrari.
Vettel and Raikkonen’s bromance has to be one of the highlights of the season, with the duo getting along brilliantly on and off the track.
It’s like when you’re out with your really drunk mate, and you’re slightly drunk, but have to act super normal to compensate and make excuses for your drunk mate.

During the FIA gala, their bromance hit its peak, with multiple videos surfacing of the duo having a brilliant time with each other at the event.
Kimi being intoxicated of course took their bromance to another level.
Now, on his final visit to Maranello, Kimi caught up with Vettel for one last time and came up with a wonderful post for his teammate.
“Was nice working with you mate” Kimi posted on Instagram.

Do you think Leclerc and Vettel will have the same chemistry next year and will Kimi be able to take Sauber to at least one podium finish next season?
