Raikkonen interested in trying NASCAR, rallying again following F1 career

Kimi Raikkonen has revealed that once his F1 career comes to a close, he'd like to try his hand at NASCAR and WRC once again.

The 34-year-old Formula One World Champion admitted to CNN that although he is content right now, he'd like to return to NASCAR or rallying after his F1 career comes to an end.

He competed in 22 WRC events and two NASCAR races during his previous hiatus from Formula One. Talking with CNN, the birthday boy said, "I really enjoy the whole NASCAR thing. It's just completely different and fun. It was a good experience."

"Hopefully I can do more (races) some day. I've said I'd like to do some more rallies in the future," he added. "I'm not a young guy anymore. I want to do something more with my life than just Formula 1."

He went on to say that he plans to end his F1 career with Ferrari, which he hinted should go through 2016, at the very least.
