Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen will join Fernando Alonso at Ferrari from 2014 after agreeing a two-year contract, the Italian team has confirmed.
Raikkonen, 33, from the Enstone-based marque, won the world title with Ferrari in 2007, but was displaced by the arrival of Spaniard Alonso in 2010.
The Finn will replace Felipe Massa, who announced via Twitter that he will leave at the end of the current season.
Raikkonen said: "I'm really happy to return to Maranello where I spent three fantastic and very successful years."
