Raikkonen is not even denying that he could in turn move to McLaren.

"I have zero interest to get involved in all the nonsense," he told reporters in Austria when asked about the speculation.

For his part, Monaco-born Leclerc said he has heard the rumours but is preferring simply to focus on his work at Sauber.

"I don't think about it too much, although that is difficult.
