Kimi Raikkonen says that Ferrari will be his final team in Formula 1, although he denied that he would leave the sport once his contract expires at the end of 2015.

At the British Grand Prix in July, Raikkonen said that he would 'probably' stop once his current contract runs out at the end of next season.

But the Finn insists that while he will not move teams in Formula 1 again, he has no plans to leave the sport just yet.

"I'm not a young guy anymore so obviously I want to do something more in my life than just Formula One," he told CNN.

"But I have no plans, I will finish my career at Ferrari, we'll see in the future."

When reminded of his comments made in the run-up to the race at Silverstone, Raikkonen insisted that he had been misquoted.

"No I never said that," he replied.

"The only thing that I said was that I will finish my career in Ferrari, F1 career in Ferrari, then people came up with 'it's end of this year, it's now, it's then'.

"With newspapers they just try to make rumours, wanting to be the guy that writes something up, it's just rumours."
