German Hulkenberg, believed to be the favourite for the vacant Lotus seat, said at Suzuka on Thursday that he wants the team's answer by the end of the month.

Massa, also in the running as he departs Ferrari, agreed: "It (the October deadline) is important not only for him but also me and any driver who is looking for a team.

"I think it will not take too long," he is quoted by Brazil's O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper in Japan.

Massa said he is in talks with "three" teams regarding 2014, and correspondent Livio Oricchio said they are Lotus, Force India and Williams.
