Reactions on Ferrari signing Kimi Raikkonen for 2014 and 2015

Speculation has ended and Kimi Raikkonen
Lotus F1's reaction on their twitter feed - Seriously!!
will be driving for Ferrari in 2014 and 2015.

First the most bizarre reaction from Lotus F1: “So #Kimi is off to #Ferrari for 2014; it hurts a little bit…” along with a photograph of two rabbits mating.

The man himself, Kimi Raikkonen: “I am really happy to be returning to Maranello where I previously spent three fantastic and very successful years,” said Kimi. “I have so many memories of my time at Ferrari, memories which have stayed with me these past years, first and foremost, winning the World Championship title in 2007, which was really unforgettable. I can’t wait to be driving a Prancing Horse car again and to reacquaint myself with so many people with whom I had such close links, as well as working with Fernando, whom I consider a great driver, in order to bring the team the success it deserves.”

Stefano Domenicali: “I am pleased to welcome Kimi back to the Scuderia, the team with which he won his World Championship title. I sense he is very happy to be returning to Maranello and very determined to tackle the work that awaits him in the best way possible,” added the Italian team boss.

His closest rival next year Alonso: “I’d like to welcome my new travelling companion: together, starting next year, we will have to tackle a very demanding technical and racing challenge."

Eric Boullier: "We are currently in discussion with a few people and will make a decision shortly,” Boullier told the team website. We are in the privileged position of being the most desirable team on the grid with a seat available, so we are therefore in no rush to announce anyone without establishing what will be the best for our team and the future.”
