Nico Rosberg was still giving nothing away as speculation once again reared its head on Wednesday about his future in Formula One.

With it already rumoured that he is McLaren engine partner Mercedes' preferred choice for 2010, the British team's boss Martin Whitmarsh on Wednesday acknowledged that Lewis Hamilton's current teammate Heikki Kovalainen needs to up his game.

We revealed some time ago that an option for the 2010 season on Finn Kovalainen's contract would expire at the end of July. It has now emerged that McLaren indeed did not automatically extend its deal with the 27-year-old.

When faced with the lingering talk about his future this week, German Rosberg, who currently drives for Williams, said only: "Everything is a question of the right timing."
