Raikkonen to marry, Button splits with wife

Kimi Raikkonen looks set to get married for the second time.

The Ferrari driver's partner Minttu, with whom Raikkonen already has a child, wrote on her blog that rumours the pair recently got married in New York are wide of the mark.

"We did not get married but I did find a wedding dress. So next summer I am allowed to call him my husband," she wrote.

Raikkonen, 36, was married to another Finnish model, Jenni Dahlman, in 2004, and they divorced in 2014.

Meanwhile, British newspapers are reporting that another world champion, Jenson Button, has split with his wife Jessica Michibata.

The McLaren-Honda driver and the Japanese model have been together for years, and they got married at the end of 2014.

A spokesman for Button said: "Jenson and Jessica have decided to go their separate ways and it is very amicable. There is no one else involved."
