Räikkönen reveals his Lotus-option

Kimi Räikkönen confirmed in MTV3:s interview in Singapore, that he and Lotus have an option when it comes to the next season

However the option hasn't yet been used and that's why Räikkönen doesn't want to talk about next season.

- The team and I have an option. Before they are signed you never know what is going to happen. We have seen earlier in F1, sadly, that even though you have a contract it doesn't mean that you would drive somewhere, Räikkönen told to MTV3 referring to how Ferrari kicked him out despite his contract.

According to information MTV3 has, Räikkönen's and Lotus-team's options expire at the end of September. According to inside sources the relationship is good on both sides and it's probable that Räikkönen continues in Lotus.

- I don't have any reason to do anything else, Räikkönen assures about his continuance in F1.

Räikkönen emphasizes that the information concerning him switching teams, spread by the media, are not coming from himself.

- After every race they seem to know terribly well where everyone is going to drive. According to them things change every second day, Räikkönen said about the rumour mill on the paddock.
