Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen says he will probably stay in Formula 1 next season, although he had no reaction to fresh speculation of a move to Red Bull in 2014.

Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz and his right-hand man Helmut Marko have both been quoted in the past week saying Raikkonen is on their list of potential drivers for next season.

"The season is only two races old so I'll try to do this year well and we will see what happens," Raikkonen said.

Mark Webber is on a one-year deal at Red Bull and his relationship with the team was damaged by the team-orders controversy at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Raikkonen, speaking Thursday ahead of Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix, said "I don't have a contract for next year so I don't have a plan. I probably will be (in Formula 1) but it's a funny place."
