Raikkonen doesn't feel old although he raced against fathers of current rivals
At 41, the Finn is the oldest active driver and longest-serving in Formula 1 history, but he is being generally matched or outpaced by Antonio Giovinazzi this season.
"I honestly don't know yet," Raikkonen told Sport1 when asked about next year.
"It was the same thing around this time last year too. We'll see.
"In any case, I'm not interested in extending my (race) record. All records are broken at some point. That's why it doesn't make me feel any particular way."
Kimi says it is hard to assess how well the 22-year-old son of his former rival and F1 legend Michael Schumacher is doing so far in Formula 1.
"It's difficult for him to shine because the car isn't very fast," said the Finn.
"But that's also good for him too, because people know the car isn't good. So if he still does strong races and shows his speed, that's positive for him.
"He's under a lot of pressure with the name, but a bad car gives him an easier start because expectations are low. It gives him more time to learn things," Raikkonen added.
When asked if he feels old to have raced the fathers of his current rivals Schumacher and Max Verstappen, Kimi smiled: "No, not at all.
"I sometimes feel old when I wake up in the morning, but not in the racing car on the racetrack."
As for whether he thinks Mick would be a good successor at Alfa Romeo, Raikkonen admitted: "If I decide to quit, I really don't care who drives the car.
"That's not my problem."
