Scepticism about the new F1 teams for 2010 continues in the drivers' camp.

Nico Rosberg said this week that he has not held talks with Manor, USF1 and Campos about next year. Also on the market is the BMW-Sauber test driver Christian Klien.

But when asked about whether he is eying the new teams, Klien told the Austrian news agency APA: "You can't visit a factory because there's nothing there.

"You can't sign anything at the moment because the uncertainty about whether they're going to be there next year is still too large," he added.

German driver Nick Heidfeld also said he does not see the new teams as options.

"I try to follow what they're doing but obviously there are rumours that they are not doing a lot and maybe don't have enough money or whatever," he told reporters at Monza.
