Kimi Raikkonen will remain at Ferrari next season.

The 2007 world champion, whose future with the Italian team had been in doubt, will continue to partner Sebastian Vettel in 2016.

Williams driver Valtteri Bottas had been heavily linked with Raikkonen's seat, but Ferrari have confirmed their driver line-up will remain unchanged.

A short statement from the team released ahead of this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix read: "Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has renewed its technical and racing agreement with Kimi Raikkonen.

"The driver line-up next season will still consist of the Finnish driver and Sebastian Vettel."
