As for his future, Räikkönen reckoned, "I don't have any plans. I'll do normal things and see what comes up. If it's something interesting, then maybe, I'll do something. I don't want to make plans because right now I have the freedom to do things with the family." On being questioned if he would be done with racing, he concluded that if something bewitching pops up, he might give it a thought.
