Pedro de la Rosa admits he still isn't sure on his plans beyond the end of the current F1 season.
The Spaniard made his return to a race seat this season with Sauber having spent recent years in the role of test driver for McLaren but has endured a difficult campaign – reaching the finish in just three of the ten races run so far.
De la Rosa is also the only driver aside from those driving for the three newcomers still to score this season, although he only lost out on points in Valencia thanks to a post-race penalty.
Despite revealing that he is 'available' for 2011, de la Rosa insisted he still doesn't know what the future holds with his current focus being on enjoying the remainder of the season.
“For my future, I don't know,” he told AS
. “We will speak about it in September. I've learned not to hurry.”
Speaking to the EFE
news agency, de la Rosa revealed that his main aim for the remainder of the season was to try and help Sauber make progress up the order, even with limited funds available.
“I am trying only to enjoy the moment,” he said. “The next two races are very important for the team and myself. My fight is for the top ten and we have to be realistic about our limitations.
“We have potential and all the ingredients. I'm driving well but we are developing the car with a limited budget.”
