McLaren may not make its announcements about drivers for the 2010 season until after November's Abu Dhabi finale, Norbert Haug suggested earlier this week.

Amid the driver 'silly season', the speculation surrounding Mercedes-powered McLaren is rife: Heikki Kovalainen's future is unclear, and his expected successor Nico Rosberg is now linked instead with a move to Brawn GP.

"It is still very early. Perhaps we will announce our driver pairing at the end of the season, but that is not for sure," Mercedes' competition director Haug is quoted as saying.

It has also emerged that, despite previously scheduling the announcement for Monza, Mercedes will no longer publicise its plans for its 2010 customer engine programme this weekend.
