Tiago Monteiro says he is not sure if he will still be a Midland driver beyond the end of this year.

The 30-year-old, whose Dutch teammate Christijan Albers is almost certain to remain at the Silverstone based team, told ‘Formule 1 Race Report’ that he is in talks.

Asked directly if he would be racing an MF1 in 2007, however, Portugal’s Monteiro replied: ”It is difficult to say, but we are in conversation with each other.

”Your fortunes in this sport can differ almost daily.”

Monteiro, backed by state controlled Portuguese oil company Galp, signed a one year contract at the end of last season to stay at the former Jordan squad in 2006.gmmf1
