Lewis Hamilton has refused to commit to McLaren, saying his only goal is to win, he just needs to "to think of the right place to do so"...
Despite having been with McLaren since making his Formula One debut in 2007, and one could argue even longer given his past relationship with Ron Dennis, Hamilton has yet to sign on the dotted line.
McLaren have reportedly offered the Brit a $100m contract to race for them for five seasons but still no signature has been forthcoming as Hamilton weighs up his options.
One option could be Mercedes who are believed to be parting ways with Michael Schumacher at the end of this year. However, already all parties have denied that Hamilton is on his way.
That, though, didn't stop the questions from coming in Thursday's FIA press conference ahead of Monza.
Asked about the advantages of racing for Mercedes, Hamilton said: "I've no idea, I've not really thought about it.
"I drive for McLaren, we've won the last two grands prix, we've another big race coming up and that's what I need to focus on."
Pressed as to what his criteria are for next season, the Brit said: "I want to win. Just need to think of the right place to do so."
But for now, Hamilton says he's not thinking about the future, he's only focus in this weekend's Italian GP.
"I have a great weekend ahead of me and that's what I'm going to focus on," he said.
"I don't have a deadline (for a decision). Obviously before next season would be useful. I'm in a great position and I just need to focus on the preparations for these races.
"There is a long way to go before the end of the season. Jenson (Button) has shown we have great potential in our car and team and that's what I need to focus on."
The 27-year-old also downplayed the Twitter saga from Spa which resulted in McLaren asking him to delete a tweet he had posted that revealed sensitive telemetry data.
"Nothing happened, the head of the PR department asked me to take it off, so I did.
"I haven't spoken to Jenson about it and don't plan to. We've on from it. Obviously it wasn't the best thing to do and it won't happen again."
