Robert Kubica and his manager are turning their focus to 2012, as the chances of switching to a title-winning team next year fade.

Ross Brawn in Valencia scotched reports that Mercedes is looking to sign the 25-year-old Pole for 2011, and the lineups at McLaren, Ferrari and Red Bull are also not changing.

Kubica will therefore almost certainly re-sign with Renault, and the simplest way to do this would be to activate a contract 'option' that it is believed will otherwise expire on July 15.

"Very soon I will have to take my own decisions and then we will see," he said at the weekend.

The online magazine GP Week believes Red Bull could be an option for 2012, with Kubica's manager Daniele Morelli confirming that "next year is not our focus any more, 2012 is".
