Trulli's contract for 2012 'fixed'

Jarno Trulli has revealed that he has already signed a deal with Team Lotus for the 2012 season.


The Norfolk-based team are yet to confirm the contract but team principal Tony Fernandes admitted a few weeks ago that discussions are already underway.

"I am delighted to confirm that we are in the process of negotiating an extension to his contract with us and we are all looking forward to unveiling the details of that very soon," Fernandes said.

Trulli, who along with Heikki Kovalainen has been with Lotus since their debut season in 2010, says the negotiations are done and dusted and he everything has been "sorted" for the 2012 season.

"We have already sorted next year," he told Manipe F1. "That story came out at that particular stage, but we were in talks from much earlier on," he said, referring to Fernandes's comments. "It was fixed and is fixed, so we are not in contact talks at all at the moment, it's all fixed for 2012."

He added: "I have a contract. Whether the team want to announce it or not, it's none of my business."

Ciao Jules, F1 remembers the affable Frenchman
