Daniel Ricciardo says he is not distracted by his plans for next year, as he aims to finish the 2011 season on a high note.
The Australian made his grand prix debut with the HRT team in the British Grand Prix and has so far performed strongly, often outperforming his more experienced teammate Tonio Liuzzi. Ricciardo's future remains uncertain, however, with HRT having signed Pedro de la Rosa for 2012 and with Liuzzi believed to have another year of his contract left.
Ricciardo says, however, that his main priority is to do a good job in Brazil this weekend before worrying about what's next.
"Not much [to say]. Like a few of us, we are not sure what is happening next year," said Ricciardo. "I will live for the moment now and try and do the best I can this weekend and see what comes from there. We'll see what opens up next year. It's not really something I am prioritizing at the moment. My mind is still on this weekend."
The HRT driver said he has been pleased with his overall performance during his maiden F1 season, even though he concedes it was not ideal to make his debut halfway through.
"It has been not bad," he added. "Obviously it took a while to get the big wheel going, but I think I gained some momentum and had some pretty good races since then and also good qualifying.
"Coming in half season is not easiest thing to do. There are always going to be things you are not 100 percent happy about or things you think you could do better.
"I know the potential is there, I just have to put it together more often. I am pretty happy especially if I am to finish this weekend on a good note. I'm satisfied with the last 10 or 11 races."
