Kimi Raikkonen hints at retirement from F1 at the end of next season

It seems Kimi Raikkonen might be leaving Formula One to pursue other forms of motorsports at the end of 2015, when his current contract with Ferrari expires. 
 
Over winter last year, Raikkonen signed a two-year deal with the fabled F1 team, but unlike his team mate, Fernando Alonso, Raikkonen has struggled for results in the ongoing season with just 19 points to his name from eight races.

The media quizzed the 'Iceman' if he saw himself at Ferrari for a long time, to which he replied, "Until my contract is finished and then I will probably stop. That is what I think is going to happen."

Raikkonen has expressed interest in driving in other series outside of F1, although he isn't sure where he would move on to next.

"You always learn when you drive different things but the problem is that the teams are scared if we get hurt so there is a big conflict on that. In the past when I was at Ferrari I was allowed to do some rallies, and I thought it was a big help and I was doing well at the same time in Formula One. But every team is different," remarked Raikkonen.
 
Well, with strong rumours persisting Ferrari is considering a Le Mans return from 2016, could Raikkonen remain at Ferrari - just donning the red overalls in a different pedigree of motorsports?
