Recent reports have hinted Renault team boss Eric Boullier is disappointed with the veteran German and considering replacing him with either Romain Grosjean or Bruno Senna.

Senna walked the Hungaroring circuit on Thursday ahead of his Friday practice drive in Heidfeld's car.

"It doesn't mean he's going to get my seat," Heidfeld, who revealed he has scheduled a meeting with Boullier on Friday to discuss the situation, insisted.

"It's not been a perfect season so far but it is enough to fight for a seat next year."

But with Vitaly Petrov firmly under contract for 2012, a vacancy at Renault depends on the health of Robert Kubica, for whom Heidfeld is currently substituting.

I don't really know what the situation with Kubica is

"Yes, of course, although I can't go into the details of my contract," Heidfeld, who did not rule out a switch to another team, is quoted on Thursday by German media.

"I don't really know what the situation (with Kubica) is."

Meanwhile, Heidfeld confirmed that Renault is running its conventional front-exiting exhausts this weekend, after testing Red Bull-style diffuser exits last week in Germany.
