Raikkonen announcement just publicity stunt [video]

Kimi Raikkonen did not announce his plans for the 2013 season as he turned 33 on Wednesday.

A viral video on the internet, posted by an advertising agency that works with the 2007 world champion, announced recently that the speculation about Raikkonen's future beyond 2012 will "come to an end" on 17 October, "when a new contract will be published".

Actually, it was all just a publicity stunt for the Lotus driver's new personal sponsor, a Finnish clothing brand called Makia Racing.

The entertaining video posted on Wednesday can be seen above.
