Heikki Kovalainen says he is still negotiating with Caterham for a chance to remain with the outfit for 2013, despite Mike Gascoyne's recent comments.
The team's chief technical officer claims the Finn hasn't done himself any favours in securing a seat, and should have shown more respect, rather than focusing on a move to a top team.
Kovalainen though brushed the comments aside and insists he will remain friends with Gascoyne.
"I have always had a good relationship with Mike, and will continue to do so", he told Finnish station MTV3. "Mike is experienced and professional, and I've worked with him for a long time."
Talking about his prospects, he says he is still negotiating with those that make the final decision.
"Fact. I do not negotiate with him [Gascoyne] I talk to Tony Fernandes and Cyril Abiteboul.
"Right now we continue the negotiations and I think of nothing other than Formula 1, so let us first play the game until the end and when we know the outcome, we can think about the next steps."
