A week on since Mark Webber announced he was quitting Formula One at the end of this year to join Porsche's sportscar programme, and Red Bull team principal Christian Horner confirmed Raikkonen was in the frame for the seat, the Finn is refusing to let all the talk get to him.
Raikkonen, who is vying for the place alongside Toro Rosso duo Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne, initially gave short shrift to a member of the media who dared to ask the 33-year-old about his future.
"It's four days ago since you probably asked last time, and nothing has changed," said the Lotus driver, speaking ahead of Sunday's German Grand Prix.
Pushed as to whether he was at least thinking about it, Raikkonen said: "You always think about what can happen.
"But I'm not in a hurry. Things will happen at some point. There are good things and bad things (about moving). You are never going to get things perfect.
"But that's nothing new, it's always like that, and there are always compromises on everything - in life and in work.
"But like I say, nothing has changed since the last race. Once I know then I can say more, but I don't know, so there's nothing to add.
"We can only guess if it's going to be a day, a week, or never."
As to whether the speculation is a distraction, Raikkonen said: "It has been like that for years, so it's not going to change now.
"I do my thing, you guys (the media) do your stuff. It doesn't matter to me. I've never had to worry about those things.
"I've good people looking after me and they've always done good things for me. I've no doubt they will do so again."
