Raikkonen: No hurry for F1 future



Kimi Raikkonen says that future seat rumours will still go on and it is a very normal situation for Formula 1. 2007 world champion has previously been linked to the Red Bull seat presently occupied by Mark Webber.

Also the Finn reveals that there are no secret, and he believes that there are several options for 2014 and added that no hurry for future decision.

“I’m sure there are some options, there’s no secret,” there are not many top, top drivers that have no contract [for 2014],” Raikkonen told paddock reporters.

“I am probably the only one of those and there are some contracts that will end next year. I don’t have a contract, so it is normal [speculation] happens.

“Even if you have a contract the rumours will still go on and it is a very normal situation for F1. It is not me or my management that will create the stories; it comes from the other side of the table.

“I would rather do my work well and if I do well I am sure I will get the contract I want. I am sure if we want to make a contract in the end together it will be very easy and not a painful way of doing it,” Raikkonen said.

“It just involves certain details to get right and that is it. I don’t really think we have to sit down every day and discuss it because it is not going to change, the decision has to come from me and I have not made any decision.”
