McLaren’s long time driver fitness trainer, Mark Arnall, is set to move with Kimi Raikkonen to the Ferrari team in 2007.

In an article revealing 27-year-old Kimi’s purchase of an apartment in Milan ahead of his new three year tenure, La Gazzetta dello Sport said Mark Arnall – who previously worked with Mika Hakkinen at the Woking based team – is also moving to Italy.

Londoner Arnall, 34, reportedly told McLaren on Wednesday that he would not be seeking a new contract.

“Kimi is easy to work with,” he said, “because he really loves sport so it’s not like I force him to work.”

Meanwhile, it is understood that Raikkonen will maintain Switzerland as his main residence, for tax reasons.
