Raikkonen not thinking about superlicence decision
The 21-year-old will learn on Thursday if he will be given the go-ahead to drive in Formula One next year but Raikkonen, who has competed in just 23 single-seater races, vowed to continue testing on without the pressure of the outcome of the FIA World Council Meeting.
"This is just a normal test for me," said Raikkonen. "I am not thinking about the Formula One superlicence at all.
"I obviously don't have a clue about how it will go. I haven't had any feedback about it and I will find out whether I will get it on Thursday.
"At the moment I am trying not to think about it and I am just enjoying the test. This is my first time at this circuit and it is good to get a feel for the car."
Raikkonen, who competed in Formula Renault this year, admitted he has no idea where his future will lie if he is denied a superlicence.
"At the moment I am trying not to think about it," he said. "If the FIA do not allow me a licence I really do not know what I will do. I will have to talk to my agent."
