Heikki Kovalainen has said he believes he has a 'good chance' of making a comeback next season.

Kovalainen made his F1 debut with Renault in 2007, before then spending two years at McLaren, and more recently a three-year spell at Caterham, albeit initially in its Lotus guise.

The Finn was, however, dropped this year, before being drafted back in to help with development, taking in four free practice sessions, the most recent today [Friday] at Monza ahead of the Italian Grand Prix.

Speaking to Sky Sports F1 after that run, he added that while he hasn't started any talks yet, he is still optimistic.

"This year I don't know, but next year definitely," he replied when quizzed on his chances of getting a drive in 2014.

"I am not in discussion with any other teams and even with Caterham just at the moment I am just focussing on this role that they have given me this year and I have no firm plans for next year yet.

"I think it is good. It is not 100 per cent, but I'd say I have a good chance. Of course if a sponsor wants to give me a lot of money I don't mind, but I am not going after money. There is nothing wrong with that, if someone has the money then why not. There are some good drivers out there who have budgets, but I am not looking for anything - but if someone out there has cash, call me!"
