Kimi Raikkonen says he is happy about the prospect of returning to Ferrari, where he won his sole world championship in 2007.

Raikkonen raced for the team between 2007 and 2009 and Ferrari confirmed earlier on Wednesday that the Finn will partner Fernando Alonso in 2014 and 2015.

"I am really happy to be returning to Maranello where I previously spent three fantastic and very successful years," said Raikkonen, who currently races for Lotus.

"I have so many memories of my time at Ferrari, memories which have stayed with me these past years, first and foremost, winning the World Championship title in 2007, which was really unforgettable."

Raikkonen says he is eager to begin working with Alonso, who he refers to as a 'great driver'.

"I can’t wait to be driving a Prancing Horse car again and to reacquaint myself with so many people with whom I had such close links, as well as working with Fernando, whom I consider a great driver, in order to bring the team the success it deserves."
