Kimi Raikkonen has said he has no worries about his future in Formula 1, amid continued uncertainty that he will see out his contract at Ferrari.
Raikkonen has a deal with the Maranello-based team until the end of 2010, but the Scuderia is believed to have been looking to reach a deal to buy out the contract so the Finn can move aside for Fernando Alonso.
Although those talks have reached a stalemate, Raikkonen has said he is calm about what will happen next year after claiming he has options with other outfits if he did not carry on with Ferrari.
"If for some reason I am not at Ferrari next season I know I'll have a seat at another team in the paddock," the Finn was quoted as saying by the British media on Saturday. "It's not a problem. Other teams want me.
"I'm too young to retire. I have a contract with Ferrari for next season. If I didn't want to race next season I would not have signed a contract."
Representatives of Raikkonen are understood to have approached Brawn GP earlier this year to enquire about options there, while the Finn has also been linked to a return to McLaren the team he left at the end of 2006 to join Ferrari.
