Kimi Raikkonen has downplayed concerns over his future in Formula 1, re-iterating that it is up to Ferrari to decide whether to retain his services into 2016.

Raikkonen re-joined Ferrari at the start of 2014 and Ferrari has an option to keep him alongside Sebastian Vettel for a further season.

"I don’t have anything to discuss, I have a contract, it’s not my decision, you have to ask the team," Raikkonen said ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix.

"If I'm not with Ferrari I’m not with any [team]...you guys [journalists] are more interested than me.

"I always said it’s not the end of life if I don’t race next year but obviously I want to be here, I feel that the team is going in the right direction.

"I have a contract, they have to sign it, [it's as] simple as that."
