Toyota world rally boss Tommi Makinen has played down speculation Kimi Raikkonen could leave Ferrari at the end of the year.

Makinen, who heads the works Toyota Gazoo Racing rally team, was a guest of Raikkonen's at Monaco.

'No agreement on anything'

"Kimi could be a Toyota (rally) driver, but first he has to decide if he will continue his career with Ferrari," his deputy Mia Miettinen, also in the Principality.

Amid rumours Ferrari is looking to replace him for 2019, and faced with the rally speculation, Raikkonen insisted he has "no agreement on anything".

"I have not talked to Kimi about it. It is rumoured that he could possibly continue with Ferrari.  He has been doing excellently this year and the results would have been much better without bad luck.

I would like to see Kimi continue where he is currently," Makinen added.
