Kimi 'probably' won't extend his stay

Kimi 'probably' won't extend his stay

Kimi Raikkonen will "probably" walk away from Formula 1 when his current Ferrari deal expires at the end of next year.

The 2007 World Champion returned to the Ferrari at the start of this season after two years with Lotus, however, his second stint the Scuderia has been a trying one with just 19 points scored in eight starts.

Recently speaking about his desire to try rallycross, Raikkonen has revealed that his current Ferrari deal will most likely be his last in Formula 1.

Asked about his future and how long he will remain with Ferrari, he said: "Until my contract is finished, and then I will probably stop. That is what I think is going to happen."

But whether he will hang up his helmet or try his hand at something new, he has yet to decide.

"I don't know yet," he told ESPN. "I've tried many things and there is no harm in it, it doesn't take anything away doing it at the same time as Formula One, I think it can only help and for sure it does not harm.

"You always learn when you drive different things but the problem is that the teams are scared if we get hurt so there is a big conflict on that.

"In the past when I was at Ferrari I was allowed to do some rallies, and I thought it was a big help and I was doing well at the same time in Formula One. But every team is different.

"It would be nice, not just for us, but for the fans and the spectators seeing us doing many things and mixing them up."
