Zak Brown says that McLaren has not yet opened contract talks with former team driver Kimi Raikkonen.

Zak Brown has said that McLaren has not yet opened contract talks with former team driver Kimi Raikkonen.

It is rumoured in the paddock that Fernando Alonso could quit Formula 1 or the beleaguered British team at the end of the year.

Daniel Ricciardo and now Raikkonen have been linked with the seat.

McLaren executive Brown told Finland's C More: "We did not negotiate with Kimi.

"He's a very good driver. The summer is now underway, so there's a lot of options out there, but we keep them to ourself.

"Certainly Kimi is a world champion and he won many races for us. If he is available, you'd be a fool to ignore it."

The 2018 calendar continues tomorrow with the British Grand Prix.
