The bosses of the Renault and Toyota teams on Friday confirmed their tussle to sign up Robert Kubica for the 2010 season.

It had been believed that the Pole would be revealed next week as Fernando Alonso's replacement at Renault, but at Suzuka it emerged that Toyota is also pushing to sign the 24-year-old.

"I guess we are probably fighting with our friends here on the right," said Toyota's John Howett in a news conference, also attended by Renault's acting team boss Bob Bell.

Asked who has the best chance of winning the scrap for Kubica, Bell added: "I think I will say we have and John will say he has, so I think we will let history determine that one."
