"Jarno Trulli has been comprehensively thrashed by his team-mate this year.

"The Lotus car did not take the step forward expected and he has looked pretty uncomfortable at the wheel.

"He appears to have a contract for 2012 although there is much talk of a possible buyout.

"Trulli has had a fine career and can't be enjoying running round near the back."
