Lotus to confirm Trulli deal

2010-10-13 10:24

STAYING?: Jarno Trulli's extended stay at Lotus still to be confirmed.

Confirmation of Jarno Trulli's extended stay at Lotus next year is due before the forthcoming Korean Grand Prix.

That is the claim of the Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat, insisting that the Italian's current teammate Heikki Kovalainen has already penned a new deal for 2011.

It was reported from Suzuka that Trulli, 36, was bullish about the future, even though it had been expected that Lotus' 2011 lineup would have been confirmed by now.

Turun Sanomat said Finn Kovalainen - who is currently staying in Kuala Lumpur at team chief executive Riad Asmat's house - signed his new deal on the Sunday morning of the Italian grand prix last month, but that Trulli's salary talks were ongoing.

The report added that Trulli still hasn't signed a contract, but that news on the driver front is sure to be announced before Korea.

Lotus has been making many announcements recently, including the termination of its Cosworth contract, an altered name for 2011 and the Red Bull technical deal.

Confirmation of the Renault engine deal is still pending.

Lotus joked about the situation after qualifying was rained off at Suzuka last Saturday, revealing that the team "has nothing to announce for the first time in several weeks".
