Bruno Senna has slammed reports he has agreed to switch from HRT to the team currently known as Lotus Racing for 2011.

The reports emerged around the same time that it was suggested current Lotus driver Jarno Trulli had visited America recently to explore opportunities in NASCAR.

"I think people are just ... they are making up rumours," said the Italian.

Trulli's manager Lucio Cavuto went further, revealing to Autosprint that he thinks the rumours were invented "by Senna".

Senna, however, has stridently denied the Lotus link, according to his comments published by Agencia Estado in Brazil.

"There is nothing to it. The stories are ridiculous," said the Brazilian.

He denied the rumours have benefitted him.

"It's bad for the job, because I look a fool when I go to speak with other teams," added the 27-year-old.
