Robert Kubica is "open minded" about his options for a drive in 2010, following BMW's decision to withdraw from Formula 1 at the end of the season.
The Pole has been linked to a deal with Renault, a team he tested with during his junior career before being signed as a test driver by BMW. While this is believed to be his preferred option, the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix winner, who had a contract to continue with BMW next year, says he remains open to offers.
"I am quite open minded," he said. "I might have my opinions but still you're never sure, looking also to the decision of BMW.
"Leaving Hungary everything was fine, then days later was this kind of decision. It's very difficult to know what might happen in the future, that's why I'm quite open."
Kubica added that BMW's decision had taken him by surprise and that he had not expected to find himself on the driver market so freely.
"I was linked with BMW for very long, since 2006," said the 24-year-old. "We had a contract for next year as well, so this situation is new for us – the people working for me, and myself. We will have more meetings to find the best solution for me for next year.
"I think there are a few opportunities, but everyone was on holiday so we will start working [on it now]. I am pretty confident that I will find the right place to be next year. Of course it's difficult to know which car will be the best and where to go, but hopefully I will be in a competitive car next season."
Kubica admitted that BMW's poor performance in 2009 had made it more difficult to showcase his talent, but that he believed teams knew what he was capable of in the right machinery.
"I think this year is much more difficult for us to show," he said. "Also my way of driving and how I can perform, because the car is very difficult to drive in the style I like to drive it.
"I think all teams want two quick drivers in quick cars, and I think I have shown last year that once the car is quick I am able to give a bit more extra which might have a big influence for the final results."
