Kimi unfazed by Red Bull rumours

Kimi unfazed by Red Bull rumours

Kimi Raikkonen says his future is not set in stone as he does not have a contract in place for next season.

The Finn made an impressive return to Formula One last season with Lotus and followed that up with a winning start to this year's Championship.

As such Raikkonen has caught the eye of rival teams with Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz recently stating he is "always a candidate" at his team.

However, where Raikkonen goes in 2014 - should he even opt to leave Lotus - is anyone's guess.

"There are always a lot of rumours in F1, that is a normal thing," said the 2007 World Champion.

"I don't have a contract for next year and I have no plans. You guys make the rumours, so we will see what happens.

"The season is only two races old so I'll try to do this year well and we will see what happens."

Asked whether he intended to remain in F1, he said: "I don't have a contract so I don't really have a plan, but of course I probably will be.

"But you never know. It is a funny place. So far, I have no contract."
