Timo Glock on Thursday rejected a rumour in the Nurburgring paddock that he is a contender for Heikki Kovalainen's McLaren seat in 2010.

Finn Kovalainen revealed at the circuit that McLaren, whose engine partner Mercedes is openly keen to see a German at the wheel of its works car, has an option on his services for next year that runs out at the end of July.

"I'm happy here and I've got a contract for 2010 so it's nothing, just a rumour I guess," 27-year-old Glock, who drives for Toyota, said.

Another big rumour at the Nurburgring is that Toyota may be within a week of announcing its decision to withdraw from Formula One.
