"Jarno Trulli has blown hot and cold this season like so much of his career. He has blinding speed, every so often.

"He collected three podiums in Australia, Bahrain and Japan and we know that given a solid race set up he'll be up there if the car is working well.

"He has vast experience along with sufficient speed and fitness, but with Toyota's departure Trulli faces some difficult decisions.

"Does he call it a day and focus on his vineyards and the rest of his life, or will he race for one of the new teams such as Lotus? I suspect he will try to stay in F1."
