The Italian veteran, eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new power steering system for the T128 car, is not racing this weekend as boss Tony Fernandes hands over the seat to Indian reserve driver Karun Chandhok.

But Fernandes insisted when he announced the Chandhok news that Trulli can expect a new contract for 2012.

"This clears the air for so many people who have been talking rubbish," the 37-year-old is quoted by the Daily Mail at the Nurburgring.

"I couldn't talk before, but things have to happen at the right time. The future is looking bright," added Trulli.

Trulli confirmed he will be back in his deep-green car in Hungary next weekend, when the steering system he so dislikes will be replaced with an updated version.

"I'd rather do this (sit out a race) now so I can start a complete new season from the next race," he said.
