Heikki Kovalainen is looking forward to Caterham decision.

Oct.12 (GMM) Heikki Kovalainen has revealed he is in "serious" talks with Caterham about returning to the F1 grid in 2014.

"The only serious discussions have taken place with Caterham, so I'm looking forward to their decision," Kovalainen told Finland's Turun Sanomat newspaper.

"It's hard to say what the chance is, but the relationship is good," he added.

Kovalainen was the fastest of the Caterham and Marussia drivers on Friday.

He insisted: "I don't feel that I need to prove anything in these practices, because the teams knows exactly what they get with me."
