Raikkonen gets new race engineer

Kimi Raikkonen will have Antonio Spagnolo in his ear during the 2014 season at Ferrari.

The Italian outfit confirmed on Tuesday that former Minardi engineer Spagnolo, who has been with the squad since 2005, will be the Finn's race engineer when he returns to the stable.

Raikkonen previously worked with Andrea Stella, who is currently part of Fernando Alonso's team, during the 2008 season at Ferrari while Chris Dyer was his race engineer when he won the 2007 World Championship.

The Scuderia also confirmed that the 34-year-old visited Maranello to meet team principal Stefano Domenicali as well as Spagnolo.

"It was an opportunity to go over the current state of play on the design of the 2014 car, as well as a chance for Kimi to meet up with many old friends who, in a few weeks time, will once again be his team," Ferrari said on their website.

The shuffle means Rob Smedley is unlikely to remain at Ferrari next year following Felipe Massa's departure to Williams. The Englishman has been linked with Williams and McLaren.
