It has been rumoured that, presumably in the interest of continuity, the Enstone based team plans to definitely conclude the 2011 season with substitute Nick Heidfeld at the wheel of the R31.

"The situation is very clear," team boss Boullier told the Polish publication Sport.

"We have an agreement with Robert and Nick is well aware that if Robert is recovered and able to come back, he will come back. End of story," said the Frenchman.

"There is no other possibility," he insisted. "I should know as I am the man who signed the contract!

"Robert is improving very quickly. After the last surgery he had to relax for some time but now he is pushing really hard. I haven't seen him lately but I've spoken to him a bit.

"I am also in constant contact with his manager Daniele Morelli and Dr Ceccarelli, who says that the situation is better than expected," said Boullier.

As for Morelli's recent claim that Kubica might return in Brazil this year, Boullier replied: "I hope so. That's all I can say."

There have also been reports recently about tension between Kubica's management and the bosses at Renault.

"I can tell you one thing. Soon the communication between Robert and the media will begin. It seems that after this race (Britain) we will organise something," said Boullier.
