The German is currently the hottest property on the driver market, with McLaren, Force India and Sauber all also reportedly in the mix.

A specialist publication this week reported that Hulkenberg has set Lotus an end-of-October deadline for the Enstone based team's definitive answer.

"I've not set a deadline, that was a misunderstanding and someone didn't lay it out correctly," Hulkenberg told reporters at Suzuka.

"But what I have said is that I would like clarification or certainty by the end of October," he added.

Hulkenberg also denied any teams have said his height or weight are playing a part in their deliberations about 2014.
