London - Kimi Raikkonen is leaving open the door to extending his Formula 1 career even beyond 2017.
Ferrari has signed up the 2007 world champion for another season, but the Finn will turn 38 during the 2018 season and it will be his 16th year in F1.
'Who knows what will happen'
Raikkonen told the Italian newspaper La Stampa: "I am thinking only of now, finishing the season well and starting next season in the best way.
"Maybe next year (2017) we are fighting for the championship, and who knows what will happen after that. Then we will talk about it with Ferrari, for sure."
Raikkonen was also asked about his relationship with Max Verstappen, following a couple of on and off-track clashes this season.
The 36-year-old said: "I don't have anything against him, but I don't know if he thinks the same way."
