Kimi Raikkonen on Thursday said he has not yet signed a new contract to keep racing in Formula One next year.

The Finn agreed to end his Ferrari deal to make room for Fernando Alonso in 2010, and two weeks ago announced that he is likely to either stay on the grid with a top-flight team or switch to rallying.

"For sure I can stay in Formula One if I want to, but there is no point in making a stupid contract so I will wait and see what is my best option," said Raikkonen, linked with a return to his team of 2002-2006, McLaren.

Raikkonen, who will turn 30 in Brazil on Saturday, also showed little regard to those eagerly awaiting news about his future in the hope it will trigger the next moves in the 2010 driver market.

"I will make my decision when I feel like it," he said.
