Ferrari to confirm Kimi Raikkonen return today?

Ferrari are reportedly poised to announce the return of Kimi Raikkonen from Lotus today.

Kimi Raikkonen is reportedly poised to finalise his return to Ferrari from Lotus today.

The 33-year-old has for some time been rumoured for a switch to the Italian team, despite Lotus offering fresh terms to the Formula 1 driver.

It is understood that an announcement could be made today following approval from Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, according to BBC Sport.

Raikkonen, who won the drivers' championship with Ferrari in 2007, is expected to push out Felipe Massa and become Fernando Alonso's teammate for next season.

Reports have claimed that Ferrari also considered signing Sauber driver Nico Hulkenberg.
