Thursday press conference – Indian GP - Pt.1

Now, a question to all of you about your future. I don't know if you've got things signed or not. Just give us some sort of update as to what's happening next year?
Heikki, would you like to start?

Heikki Kovalainen:
I wouldn't actually like to start, but now that you're pushing me… Nothing's been signed for next for myself yet. Personally, my target and my focus is at each race weekend for our team it's quite important that we try to regain that 10th position back from Marussia. It's not going to be easy but I think we have to do whatever it takes to be in a position to do that if a freak race happens again. So, the main focus is on that and regarding the future with the team and with Tony, we haven't decided yet. I think Tony knows what he gets with me but then he's evaluating other options I think to see what he wants to do. And I'm waiting. In the meantime, of course, my management is also working. There's nothing really to report but the main thing I think for myself and really for our team has to be to keep pushing to get that 10th position back, it's quite crucial.

Bruno – for next year?

Bruno Senna:
Nothing has changed from the last time I was here and you asked me the same question but the focus is still the same: keep pushing and trying to get points for the team and then hopefully be on the grid next year.


Jean-Eric Vergne:
I haven't thought about it really. So far I have a contract with Red Bull. I think I just have to keep doing the job I'm doing and improve myself every race weekend and I'll think about this race weekend and Abu Dhabi and then think about next season, but I'm quite confident about staying with Toro Rosso and that's what I would love.


Narain Karthikeyan:
Again, I have a good relationship with HRT; it's my second year with them. They've built a good factory and everything else. On paper next year they'll look the best so realistically I'd like to stay here and that's the plan right now.

Kimi, we're told we can expect an announcement next week or so, is that the case?

Kimi Raikkonen:
I don't know. I mean, we have options but nothing is decided but I guess it will be decided at some point.

Nico. There are rumours about concerning your future. Where you're going to go, when do you think you will know?

Nico Hulkenberg:
I know there is lots of talk about my future but at this point I don't want to make a comment on the speculation. I'll just focus on this weekend, which is the most important thing.

Are things settled? Can you say that?

Nico Hulkenberg:
Just no comment.
