Trulli not worrying about retirement

Jarno Trulli plays down talk that he may consider retiring from F1, insisting there is life in the old dog yet
Jarno Trulli says he isn't thinking about retiring from F1 despite a frustrating season with Lotus.

The Italian appears to have suffered the majority of problems within the Lotus team this season and has been outperformed by team-mate Heikki Kovalainen, although neither driver has been close to scoring a point this year.

While he admits to being frustrated at the way the year has gone so far, Trulli said he remained committed to the team and was confident of forward progress next year.

"My motivation is unbroken but of course the situation is frustrating," he told AutoBild. "To be honest, I don't know when [I'd retire], I don't think about it. If I'm suddenly no longer fast then it makes no sense to remain in Formula One.

"Of course this year is difficult for me to accept but the outlook for 2011 is better. I do not want to come to terms with being a backmarker. I accepted that because Lotus has a long-term plan.

"That it would be difficult in the first year was made clear to me from the start. Now I have to be patient."
