Kimi Raikkonen has insisted he has "zero plans" after retiring from F1 but is looking forward to escaping the "hectic schedule" of the sport.

Alfa Romeo driver Raikkonen closed the curtain on a career that started 20 years ago with Sauber and saw him establish himself as one of the most respected drivers in the paddock.

The 2007 world champion closed the book with a record-extending 349th grand prix start in Abu Dhabi although things ended earlier than expected when a brake problem forced him to stop the car.

Asked for his plan post-F1, Raikkonen replied: "Right now, I haven't looked at anything.

"We will see if there are some interesting things that come out.

"If it makes sense, maybe I will do it but right now, I have zero plans and I don't want to make any plans.

"I am looking forward to the less hectic schedule on my side. We will see whether we do something or not in the future."

Looking back on his time in the sport and what he will miss most, the Finn commented: "I met a lot of good people and worked with a lot of good people as well.

"I made friendships but generally, we are so busy anyhow here, always, it is not really a place to... we are friends together but we don't have time to really do anything.

"We can meet outside of all the hassle if we want. If [there is] one thing [I will miss] it is the racing.

"But there are other racing series that are probably better and more fun for pure racing. It is impossible to say."
