Kazuki Nakajima has admitted that he doesn't know what the future holds in F1, with the Japanese driver conceding that he preferred choice would be to stay with Williams for the 2010 campaign.
Nakajima has endured a trying campaign and heads into his home event on the calendar this weekend having failed to score a point – making him the only driver set to complete the entire season who has failed to get off the mark.
While he admits he would like to stay with Williams again next season, Nakajima's hopes appear to be slim, with the Grove-based outfit expected to promote test driver Nico Hulkenberg into a race seat and Rubens Barrichello linked with a move from Brawn GP that would see Nico Rosberg go the other way.
“If I could stay with Williams that would be the best but we will see,” he said ahead of this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix. “At the moment there is nothing I can say really. I think it is the same for many drivers. I think the situation is really tricky at the moment and we will have to just wait and see.
“The results have not been there but I think my performance is certainly better than last year. There have been some good races, so I hope that I can do the same job next year.”
Nakajima added that there was extra pressure on him going into his home race on the calendar, but he said he was excited about the prospects of racing at Suzuka in F1 for the first time.
“There is a pressure, but this is only the second time for me and the first time to be in Suzuka, so I never know what is going to happen,” he said. “Last year I really enjoyed the Japanese Grand Prix and I didn't really have too much pressure, so hopefully it is the same for this year. As it is my first time to drive Suzuka with an F1 car I just feel quite excited. Hopefully the weather will be good but it doesn't look like that at the moment.”
