Adrian Sutil is prepared to wait it out for a final decision from Force India about a contract for next year, after dismissing speculation that he visited Williams recently for talks with that team.
Force India has said it will wait until December to decide on its driver lineup for 2012, which means its current drivers could be left in limbo if they are not kept onboard and other seats are already taken.
Sutil said in Singapore on Thursday, however, that he is relaxed about his situation, and he dismissed rumors that he was in talks with Williams after reports suggested that both he and Kimi Raikkonen have recently visited the factory.
"I didn't go there. I wasn't there. I have no contacts with them," said Sutil, who insisted he was not worried by Force India holding back on a decision. He thinks his best tactic is simply to concentrate on doing the best job possible.
"At this moment, it is difficult to see where is possible," he said. "The team is very good here; it is doing a good performance. I know the team for a long time, so whatever I do I have to think twice if it is a good next step.
"The top teams are all closed anyway, the top four, so maybe there is no reason to change. I am just concentrated on my race, and see where it goes. I have no plans.
"The team wants to wait until December and they don't want to tell who will be in the seat, otherwise they wouldn't wait so long. Whatever I do now, I have to be fast and I have to score some points. Then hopefully it is enough for them to say, 'Yes, he deserves another year with us,' or not. If I do my races as I can, as good as possible, then I will get a seat."
Sutil also made it clear that his future was not dependent on backing from personal sponsor Medion.
"I have always had a good couple of sponsors. They have been with me from the beginning, that is important, but I don't need sponsors to survive in F1."
