Timo Glock on Thursday slammed as "bulls**t" reports he was told Toyota was not renewing his contract for 2010 after qualifying for the recent Singapore Grand Prix.

It has been confirmed that an option on the German's contract has not been taken up by the Japanese team, but Glock strongly denied the claims about how he was reportedly "fired" by boss John Howett.

In a news conference at Suzuka, he said the articles in the German press had been "the funniest I have ever read".

"There were no discussions over the weekend about a contract situation and that is all I can say.

"There were rumours going around, maybe for some it was a bit boring on Saturday and they had to find a story," the 27-year-old added.
