Raikkonen doesn't know anything: 'I've never had such an option in my contract'

According to various sources, Kimi Raikkonen and Mick Schumacher would be presented on Friday as the Alfa Romeo drivers for 2021. However, Kimi himself does not seem to know anything about this.

No news from Alfa Romeo yet

There are not many seats available for the 2021 Formula 1 season, but one of the teams that have not yet announced their line-up is Alfa Romeo. The race stable is said to give Raikkonen the choice of whether he wants to stay and places Schumacher in the other seat. Where many media claimed that Friday would be the deciding factor, Raikkonen seems to know nothing about it.

''Nothing at all has been decided yet. We'll see. I have indeed had talks with the team and in the end it is my decision. We'll see what it turns out to be'', says Raikkonen according to Autosport.com. The Finn also indicates that the aforementioned clause to have a deal in September is not based on anything.

Kimi loves racing

''If you believe the news, that may be true, but I've never had such an option in my contract, so that's new to me if you say so. So no, I haven't signed anything yet. I didn't sign last week, last month, yesterday or today. We'll see,'' says Raikkonen, who says he still enjoys racing.

''I still enjoy racing, but of course you will have more fun if you do it better. However, racing itself is fun and we have some good battles. I wouldn't be here today if I wasn't enjoying it anymore. I can do other things too'', Kimi concludes in his own way.
