Kimi Raikkonen's wish of testing a MotoGP bike will have to wait until after the end of the season, Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali said on Friday.
World champion Raikkonen said on Thursday he would like to follow his Ferrari predecessor Michael Schumacher in trying out a MotoGP bike.
Schumacher, the seven times world champion who retired at the end of 2006, took part in his first competitive motorcycle race in Italy at the weekend after previously trying out Ducati's MotoGP machine.
"I only saw some pictures but I don't know anything about it," Raikkonen told reporters at the Bahrain Grand Prix when asked if he seen Schumacher's race.
"I never tried road racing. I have done motocross often and that is more normal for me," added the Finn, who is chasing his second Formula One victory in a row on Sunday after last month's triumph in Malaysia.
"For sure I want to try the MotoGP bikes once, but we'll see."
But Domenicali said on Friday that Raikkonen will have to focus on his four-wheeled job before the team consider allowing him to ride a MotoGP machine.
"I think it was two years ago that Michael came to Mugello for the first time to see MotoGP and he realised that the world on two wheels is also a fascinating world," said Domenicali.
"He has racing, speed and new challenges in his DNA but we have to respect that and as far as we know, for sure he has a challenging view of his life but not with any kind of official or a secondary objective.
"With regards to Kimi, I would say that for sure he's using his motocross bike as we know, because he likes it, but I would say that he's more concentrating on four wheels now up to November and then we will see."
