The 2007 world champion is fourth in the standings with four races remaining in 2018, having scored nine podium finishes.
He remains without a grand prix win since 2013, however, and will be replaced at Ferrari in 2019 by Charles Leclerc.
Raikkonen will remain on the grid, however, swapping seats with Leclerc and returning to Sauber – the team he made his F1 debut with in 2001.
