Car India - - SPORT -

Charles Leclerc, the new rac­ing prodigy, will move to Fer­rari next sea­son, ful­fill­ing one of the fi­nal re­quests of de­parted FIAT head Ser­gio Mar­chionne. The French rac­ing driver was in the run­ning for some time now, fol­low­ing sev­eral stand­out per­for­mances with the Alfa Romeo Sauber team who run Fer­rari en­gines. Kimi Raikko­nen, mean­while, will take up the Sauber seat Leclerc va­cates, es­sen­tially re­turn­ing to the team he made his début with back in 2001. The Finn’s lat­est sign­ing is a two-year con­tract, so fans can ex­pect to see the Iceman through the 2020 rac­ing sea­son as well.
