Why is Trulli Silent about Next Season's Plans

Okay conspiracy theorists and those with fertile imaginations... Fire away.

Considering that the Conventional Wisdom is that he has already signed with TOYOTA, why won't he announce it?

According to an articvle in the Daily Mail, he said, "At the moment I have not made any announcements and all I can say is I will be driving next year - I have a contract but I have to wait before I can announce it. It will be in Formula One and I will challenge for top positions."

Okay, why not declare TOYOTA now if it is fact true. Panis has been taken out of the running for the second seat, and every other front line seat is announced save BAR. There can be no legimate reason for declining to tell for either TOYOTA's sake or Renault's.


Beyond that, I frankly don't see TOYOTA competing at the front next season despite Gascoyne's efforts.


So...is his deal with an as yet unimagined option?

Maybe he has signed with BAR, but can't say anything because of the ongoing Button affair.

I think Glen might be on the mark, especially as Brundle reported this rumour back in Hungary before the Button situation unfolded. It could be that he and Sato are confirmed, but BAR don't want to reveal this until after the Button contract is decided, so as to make it look like BAR are losing out more than they are if the CRB give it WIlliams' way?

Glen and NI Tram could well be on the mark that Trulli will go to BAR, but why are Jaguar holding off making a decision (ie: publically announcing a decision) until Buttongate has been settled?

Jaguar announce no news....

Yes, we'll likely never know what is actually taking place at the moment, but it seems Trulli's job for next year is still up in the air. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he did end up at BAR. That would leave a pretty nice seat open at Toyota. (is there an emoticon for drooling? )

Jag may want Coulthard and/or Davidson, who're both likely to be hanging on for a decision from BAR first.

It would not surprise me if he had signed for multiple teams say Williams and BAR and is first option for Buttons seat with both.
