Caterham driver Giedo van der Garde says his performance over 2013 has been enough to secure a second season with the team.
The Malaysian-owned outfit have yet to confirm either of the seats for next year, with Heikki Kovalainen – who deputised for Kimi Raikkonen at the final two races in Austin and Interlagos - and Marcus Ericsson being linked with moves to the constructor.
However, Van der Garde believes he has shown himself to be a team leader and claims that Caterham are "very satisfied" with his displays.
He told GP Update: "We shall see. We are talking with them as well. My management is quite busy now and hopefully we can have some good news soon."
Caterham finished behind Marussia as Formula 1's lowest-ranking team.
