Raikkonen retained by Ferrari for 2016

There had been talks that Raikkonen had been considering leaving the team at the end of the year, but thoughts have changed as the team have renewed his contract.

I don't think it was a question of Raikkonen leaving, but the team just replacing him. It makes sense if you're Ferrari though - they don't take any risks on drivers. With that in mind, it's better to stick with Raikkonen for another season or two while waiting for Ricciardo or Bottas to become available.

Ricciardo might be an ok choice, but Bottas hasn't exactly been wiping the floor with Massa, and Ferrari knows how good Massa is...
