Raikkonen still best choice for Ferrari says Salo

Mika Salo thinks his countryman Kimi Raikkonen remains the best choice for Ferrari beyond 2016.

The fabled Maranello team is clearly shopping around for alternatives to the Finn, with rumours Sergio Perez and others are in the frame.

But Salo told Finland's Ilta Sanomat newspaper: "I do not see any reasonable options.

"If I was the team boss, I would keep the same drivers because everything is running smoothly," he explained.

"With a new driver there is always a risk regarding how he adapts and things. Continuity is always the key to success," Salo added.

Asked what he thinks of Raikkonen's performances so far in 2016, he answered: "Admittedly they have not been too good, but he still has the speed and the desire to win. That is what's most important."
