During a phone-in conference with the press on Wednesday, Martin Whitmarsh made it clear that the Finn must do better in the coming races if the wants to keep his place with the Woking-based outfit.

Whitmarsh said to the press: "We are not in active discussions with any other drivers at the moment, but it's true to say that we haven't confirmed our driver line-up for next year. A lot of us want to see Heikki get some good results this year and that will ensure that he remains with us."
