Adrian Sutil has moved to downplay rumours linking him with a move away from Force India to join Williams.
Speculation had suggested that Sutil and former F1 title winner Kimi Raikkonen had both paid a visit to Williams' Grove base to talk about 2012, with Sutil yet to find out if he will remain with Force India again next year.
However, speaking to the press in Singapore ahead of this weekend's race, Sutil denied he was talking to Williams and said he was happy to stay with his current team again for another year
"I didn't go there [Williams],” he was quoted by AFP
. “I wasn't there. I have no contacts with them.
"The team is very good here; it is doing a good performance. I know the team for a long time, so whatever I do I have to think twice if it is a good next step. The top teams are all closed anyway, the top four, so maybe there is no reason to change.
"I am just concentrated on my race, and see where it goes. I have no plans.
"The team wants to wait until December and they don't want to tell who will be in the seat, otherwise they wouldn't wait so long. Whatever I do now, I have to be fast and I have to score some points. Then hopefully it is enough for them to say yes, he deserves another year with us, or not. If I do my races as I can, as good as possible, then I will get a seat."
Sutil currently sits twelfth in the championship standings and has scored 24 of Force India's 36 points so far.
