Kimi Raikkonen will work with a new race engineer in 2009.

Ferrari's team principal Stefano Domenicali told the Italian newspaper La Stampa that Chris Dyer, the Finn's engineer this year, is moving up to a new role in charge of track engineering.

"His role has been assumed by Andrea Stella," Domenicali said.

It is believed Stella worked as a support engineer on Raikkonen's car ever since the Finnish driver joined Ferrari in 2007.

Australian Dyer also engineered for Michael Schumacher towards the end of the German's record-setting F1 career.
