Ferrari announced the Kimi Raikkonen will replace Felipe Massa starting next season, and will have Fernando Alonso as a teammate.
Alonso and Raikkonen are widely regarded as the best F1 drivers of their generation. Raikkonen won his only F1 title in 2007 in his first season with Ferrari, but left the team at the end of the 2009 season (a year early) to make room for Alonso.
