Kimi Raikkonen will bid for a better season in 2018 with a different race engineer. Italy’s Corriere dello Sport reports that Dave Greenwood, who joined Ferrari from Manor in 2015, is now returning to Manor in endurance sports car racing. “Ferrari has not yet nominated a replacement,” the report said, adding that Toro Rosso arrival Marco Matassa is one contender.
Of the front-running Mercedes and Ferrari teams in 2017, Raikkonen finished last of the four drivers. But the Finn, who at 38 is the oldest driver on the grid, vowed to improve this year. “Obviously I want to be fighting for the championship this year,” said Raikkonen.
