Kimi Raikkonen on Wednesday insisted he is "happy" at Lotus, despite rumours linking him with a return to his grandee former employers. With Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton's seats at Ferrari and McLaren respectively in doubt for 2013, those teams' former race winner Raikkonen has been mentioned as an ideal candidate.

Before taking a rallying sabbatical in 2011, the 32-year-old raced for McLaren for five years until 2006, thereafter switching to Ferrari and winning the title. But after Lotus team owner Gerard Lopez recently insisted Raikkonen is already under contract for 2013, Raikkonen said on Wednesday he is "happy" where he is for now. "I enjoy working with the people, very nice and I'm happy here but you never know what happens in the future but right now I'm happy with what's going on," he is quoted as saying by Reuters in Singapore.
