Kimi Raikkonen's manager has revealed he is seeking a signature on a 2010 contract for the Finn by the time F1 disbands for the season in Abu Dhabi early next month.

The 30-year-old last week ended his contract for next season with Maranello based Ferrari, warning at Suzuka that if he cannot find another top drive for 2010, he will either stay home or go rallying.

Raikkonen's manager Steve Robertson told the Finnish daily Turun Sanomat that he is currently in talks with multiple potential F1 teams -- and one or two that do not seem to be on the hunt for a new driver.

"Hopefully within the next 2 or 3 weeks we will have done something," said the Briton.

Previously, Robertson had admitted the possibility of a return for Raikkonen to McLaren.

He adds: "Top teams want to decide upon their drivers before the season ends in Abu Dhabi in November. A solution in that direction would also be in Kimi's best interest."
