Nov.10 - Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has joked that he wants dethroned world champion Kimi Raikkonen's less competitive stunt double to vacate the red cockpit ahead of the 2009 season.

"Kimi, was it really you in flesh and bone or was it a friend, a double, who raced for Ferrari in the final grand prix?" the Ferrari president said at Ferrari's end-of-season World Finals event at Mugello.

Raikkonen, 29, had a difficult season as reigning champion, finishing the Brazilian grand prix in third place, and third also in the final driver's classification.

Montezemolo also countered reports that new world champion Lewis Hamilton may be beating off Ferrari's approaches before long.

"With all respect for Lewis Hamilton, I'm happy with my drivers, the best pair in the world."
