Virgin keen to retain Glock and di Grassi

Virgin are intent on retaining both Timo Glock and Lucas di Grassi for next year's Championship, according to team boss John Booth.

In recent weeks, Glock has been linked to a possible move to Renault with the rumours fuelled by his own admission that he could look elsewhere for 2011. However, the German then backtracked, publicly committing his future to Virgin Racing.

Meanwhile, his team-mate di Grassi has also been at the centre of speculation with reports claiming he could be dropped in faovur of GP2 front-runner Jerome D'Ambrosio.

Booth, though, is adamant that both drivers will retain their seats for the 2011 Championship.

"Obviously Timo is here next year, his contract is tight with both of us, and both of us are very happy with what is happening," Booth told Autosport. "So Timo is 100 percent.

"We have an option on Lucas which looks pretty good as well, so in an ideal world we will keep the same drivers next year."

As for the rumours about d'Ambrosio, Booth said: "I've heard similar rumours as well, but it's that time of years for rumours.

"Jerome has been helping us out a little bit since Andy Soucek left. All he has been doing is helping us out as a stand-by because he has a superlicence."
