Reports: Kimi Raikkonen to take part ownership in Sauber after 2019
Kimi Raikkonen to take part ownership in Sauber after 2019 in a middle ground worked out between all stakeholders.
Reports in Finland now suggest that, Raikkonen could indeed move to Sauber next season, as a driver and a part owner. He would drive the Sauber for maybe a season and then opt for a more background role with the team.
Latest rumour out of Italy on Raikkonen's future. Leclerc is to delay joining Ferrari until 2020 and will stay at Sauber on the salary agreed for his contract at the Scuderia. One more year of learning the ropes for him and Kimi gets another year.

Mick Schumacher makes it a hat-trick at the Nurburgring!
In the sort of dominant on-track performance usually associated with his famous father, Mick Schumacher successfully clinched a sweep of all three races at this weekend’s round of the FIA Formula 3 European championship at the Nurburgring.
“I am very happy with my victory and with my great car. My team has done a great job,” he said after taking his fifth win of the season. “In the race, we had two safety car interventions and I had two good restarts. Every time I managed to pull away from Robert, which was important.”
