"We have to expect that Charles doesn't drive for us for long. That's why we enjoy every good result with him," Leclerc's current boss, Sauber chief Frederic Vasseur, told Blick newspaper.

Raikkonen, 38, responded to the rumours: "Nothing has changed since Canada."

But, like Fernando Alonso, the 2007 world champion indicated that is no longer as in love with Formula One as he used to be.

"It's always more fun for everyone if we're racing properly. If you have races like Monaco, when everyone is trying only 80% and they all follow one another, that's not very exciting for the fans or us as drivers.

Over the years, we have changed the rules over and over but it didn't do anything," Raikkonen added in Paul Ricard.
