Speculation heightened during the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend, with separate rumours reporting that Bruno Senna was set to replace the Italian next year, and that the Pescara-born driver was scouting for an opportunity to race in NASCAR.
However, the one-time race-winner claims the rumours are simply made up.
“It seems all invented to me, as are the rumours that I would go racing in NASCAR,” he told Italy’s Autosprint magazine.
“Before coming to Brazil I went to Miami and met [Juan Pablo] Montoya to exchange the Audemars Piguet watches that bear our names,” he added. “I’m calm about the future, as I’ve already been involved by [Mike] Gascoyne in the 2011 project.”
Trulli’s manager Lucio Cavuto also rubbished the rumours linking Senna to the 1Malaysian-owned squad, and claimed that the speculation had started in Senna’s camp simply to improve his bargaining power.
“Those are just rumours bandied about by Senna, who as far as I know has even had trouble respecting the financial obligations he took with Hispania this year,” he replied.
Trouble respecting his financial obligations? Ouch!
