Sebastien Bourdais refuted reports in the French media that the German Grand Prix will be his last for Scuderia Toro Rosso.
Rumors suggested that the 30-year-old ex-Champ Car star would be dropped after this weekend's race at the Nurburgring in favor of a Red Bull junior – possibly new reserve driver Jaime Alguersuari. But Bourdais dismissed the reports, saying there had been no discussions with the team on the subject.
"This rumor has been around since the middle of last season," Bourdais told AUTOSPORT. "What can I say? I haven't received any notice from the team that this is my last race, so as far as I am concerned it is still a rumor.
"I've got a job to do and that's what I've got to concentrate on. I can't control what people say or where it is coming from. It's very unfortunate but there's nothing we can do about it. Someone puts it out and now it is all over the place."
Bourdais, who has scored points twice so far this season, added that he had a contract to complete the season with Toro Rosso and that he has no plans to drop out of F1.
"I've got a contract to do all of the races and that's what I'm planning to do," he said. "The only thing I can say is that I am in the car and that's all that matters."
