Trulli not worried about Petrov rumours

Jarno Trulli on Thursday said he is not worried amid raging speculation he could be about to lose his race seat. The Italian veteran is signed up to stay with Caterham next year, but team figures are sounding vague about the commitment. At the same time, it is reported that Renault refugee Vitaly Petrov’s manager visited Caterham’s Hingham headquarters recently.

“I have a contract with Caterham and that’s it,” Trulli, 37, is quoted by Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport. “I know nothing about the rumours. The team has told me nothing.

“On Monday I will be at the factory for the seat fitting. Until I’m told otherwise, everything for me remains the same.”

He was also reluctant to talk about his longer-term future.

“Every time (I do), words are put into my mouth that I want to do Nascar or the (Le Mans) 24 hours. I’m only talking about Formula One.”
