Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen does not expect Stefano Domenicali's resignation from the team to change the fortunes of the squad.

Domenicali stepped down as team principal with immediate effect on Monday and has since been replaced with Marco Mattiacci.

Raikkonen says that he does not know his new boss, but isn't expecting Mattiacci to perform miracles.

"I don't know him, we've probably met before," he said. "He will have great people around him and lots of people to help him, so I don't think there will be any issues. I'm sure he will be very good at whatever he does and will do everything in his power to push us forwards.

"It will not change things suddenly around and will not make any miracles. We know where we are and we know where we have to improve and it doesn't change overnight."

Raikkonen says that Domenicali's departure is 'sad' but insists that life goes on.

"Everybody was a bit surprised but obviously that was Stefano's own decision as I understand," he said. "If he felt like that then fair enough and life goes on. It's sad because obviously he was a great guy and I worked with him for many years. Even when I didn't race for him I spoke with him. That's how it goes and I'm sure we can handle this kind of thing."
