Ferrari is edging ever nearer to confirming raging paddock speculation that Kimi Raikkonen will join the team in 2007.
Technical director Ross Brawn admitted at Circuit de Catalunya that the Finn, presently a McLaren driver, together with Michael Schumacher, would make ‘a nice combination’.
The Briton told Premiere: ”We must wait, however. Kimi is obviously a very good driver.”
Brawn, meanwhile, justified 37-year-old Schumacher’s delayed decision about next year by saying the famous German can ‘take as much time as he wants’.
26-year-old Kimi, however, increasingly seems Ferrari-bound. According to the German ‘Bild’ newspaper, he was scolded by McLaren boss Ron Dennis at Barcelona on Friday after arriving late in the garage for free practice.
