Pirelli on Wednesday said it is happy with Nick Heidfeld despite the German signing to race at Sauber for the rest of 2010.

It has been reported that the 33-year-old might not vacate his tyre testing role even though this could give the Hinwil based team an unfair advantage over its rivals.

"You should ask Sauber," a spokesman for F1's incoming official tyre supplier said.

"For now we have nothing to add or to comment except that we are working very well with Heidfeld," he added.
