Jarno Trulli has admitted he could imagine switching to the new Malaysian-owned team Lotus F1.

The Italian veteran, unlikely to retain his seat at Toyota beyond this season according to team president John Howett, has already been linked with a move to Lotus.

Trulli, 35, said the fact that the experienced Mike Gascoyne is involved with Lotus makes the team a viable option.

"I have worked together with Mike in three different teams," the veteran of 217 Grands Prix, referring to Jordan, Renault and Toyota, is quoted as saying by f1mania.net.

"I would have no problem going to a new team, if he (Gascoyne) has a leading role," Trulli added.
