McLaren plans to place Nick Heidfeld


Norbert Haug has confirmed that talks with Nick Heidfeld about a seat for next season are taking place.

It has been reported that, despite Kimi Raikkonen and Jenson Button visiting McLaren’s Woking headquarters in recent days, the 32-year-old German is also in the running to take Heikki Kovalainen’s place.

“We are speaking with Nick Heidfeld as well,” Haug, Mercedes’ competition director, told DPA.

“Mercedes-Benz supports the idea of signing an experienced and capable German driver. There is however no reason to finalise the driver situation too hastily.”

It is also rumoured that Mercedes may be interested in assigning Heidfeld to Brawn, amid expectations a major collaboration is to be announced this week.

Heidfeld wrote on his official website that he is not worried about his future after not being able to achieve high profile results with BMW Sauber in 2009.

“Fortunately, the people who run the teams can see beyond that,” he said. “So all in all, I’m quite optimistic about the future.”

Nico Rosberg is understood to have already inked a contract for 2010, raising suggestions that Jenson Button is being pushed out by Brawn in favour of a German ‘super team’.
