While Robert Kubica is believed to have now inked a contract to move to Renault next year, the future of another top driver is far less secure.
But when he spoke with reporters at Suzuka on Thursday, he would not even confirm that he will be in Formula One next year.
"Maybe I will race, maybe not," he said in Japan.
"I'm not going to go to a small team, my only aim is to have a chance with a team that can fight for the world championship. Otherwise there is no point of staying in F1."
Raikkonen, 30, hinted that an agreement with McLaren is possible, but also alluded to his burgeoning passion for rallying.
"There is a chance, but there is a chance to do Formula One. I don't know what will happen. I will decide at some point -- before the start of next year."
Asked about McLaren, he added: "I don't have any bad things to say about them. We always had a good relationship. It's a chance, but so far I have not thought much about these things."
