MILAN (Reuters) - Ferrari Formula One driver Kimi Raikkonen will step down at the end of the season, the Italian team announced on Tuesday without naming a replacement for the Finn.

Monegasque rookie Charles Leclerc, a 20-year-old Ferrari protege who races for Sauber and won last year’s Formula Two title, is expected to take the 2007 world champion’s place.
