Raikkonen to remain Ferrari driver for 2016 alongside Vettel

SPA, Belgium (AP) Kimi Raikkonen will remain at Ferrari for the 2016 Formula One championship season, partnering Sebastian Vettel.

The 2007 world champion renewed his contract with the Italian team ahead of Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix.

The 35-year-old Raikkonen has been overshadowed by the 28-year-old Vettel, who won the last race in Hungary.

The Finn has only 76 points compared to Vettel's 160 after 10 races this season.
