Romain Grosjean has confirmed that his future at the Renault team is yet to be assured.

The French outfit last week announced that Robert Kubica is to replace the Ferrari-bound Fernando Alonso in 2010, but failed to name the identity of the Pole's teammate.

Grosjean, 23, is a protege of Flavio Briatore and was selected by the ousted and banned former team boss as struggling Nelson Piquet's teammate just five races ago.

But, like Piquet, the Swiss-born French driver has similarly failed to set the F1 world alight, sparking rumours that Renault might choose to replace him as soon as this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix.

"Press!" Grosjean exclaimed in an interview with automarket.ro, during the team's latest 'roadshow' demonstration event in Bucharest.

"I haven't heard anything about that, it's just rumours and nothing else," he added.

Grosjean did admit, however, that his seat for the 2010 season is yet to be confirmed.

"We're talking with Renault but I think they're waiting until the end of the season to see what happens," he revealed.
