Raikkonen still undecided on future with Alfa or in F1


Kimi Raikkonen - Grand Prix racing's senior citizen - has yet to decide whether he wants to remain on the F1 grid next year or not.

The 40-year-old Finn's two-year contract with Alfa Romeo will expire at the end of the season, and the team's mediocre results are perhaps unlikely to boost Raikkonen's motivation to prolong his stay at Hinwill, or in F1 for that matter.

"I haven’t decided yet," the Iceman said ahead of this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.

"You’d much rather race in a better position, or fighting for the points, but there’s never a guarantee, wherever you go, that it’s going to be good or bad.

"I think the bigger picture is much more important for me.

"First of all comes the family, the kids are getting bigger, this year I’ve been able to be more home, which is great and I think that’s what makes me decide to continue racing or not.

"There’s going to be a point where I’ll want to be home and do other things, but not yet."

In light of Alfa's downbeat results, could the 2007 world champion be tempted to switch to another team for 2021?

"First of all I need to decide what I will do, and then we'll see. Obviously right now, that's the first thing to decide.

"And then I don't really see that it would change anything if I race with them, or I don't race. Like I said, until I decide what I do, those things are not really on my list."
