Kimi Raikkonen has slammed Formula 1's media for speculating about his Ferrari future, following reports he could have to take a paycut to keep racing in 2016.
The Finn's future beyond the end of this season is unclear at the moment, with Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene saying earlier this year an extension to Raikkonen's deal "depends on his performance".
Raikkonen said during pre-season testing "there is an option in the contract", but he added at the time he wouldn't "worry about it".
When asked in Austria on Thursday about rumours of a paycut for 2016, Raikkonen criticised those in the media speculating on his future.
"I heard something about that - I'd be interested to know who wrote it," said the 2007 world champion.
"First of all you have no idea what my contract says. You never have.
"It's the bullshit nonsense you guys come up with all the time. It's fine with me.
"Have you seen my contract? So you just come up with bullshit - yes or no?
"You don't know the contract but you write stuff. You write stuff that's not true.
"Maybe you should start writing some things that make sense."
After admonishing the press, Raikkonen finished with: "Write what you want, I don't really care."
