Jarno Trulli admits that he is surprised by the number of offers he has received since being dropped by the Caterham Formula 1 team.
The 37-year-old is keen to continue his racing career, and has not ruled out continuing in F1 even though such a possibility appears unlikely.
But despite the opportunities that have already arisen to race outside of F1, Trulli insists that he will take his time before deciding on his future.
“I was very surprised by the fact that one or two days later, I had already received some offers,” Trulli told AUTOSPORT. “I didn’t think that it would move so quickly.
“But I don’t want to take any decisions now. I want to put all of the offers on the table and see what is the best for me.
“At the moment, I have no plans.”
Trulli insists that he is not limiting his horizons as to where he will race. As well as not ruling out continuing in F1 in some capacity, he confirmed that America could be of interest when asked about the prospect by AUTOSPORT.
He is also likely to evaluate opportunities in sportscar racing.
“I’m open to any possibilities as far as top level and professional racing is concerned,” he said. “I’m happy to work hard, to go testing, to develop a project but I want something with a structure that at least gives me the potential for performance.
“NASCAR and IndyCar could be a possibility, but obviously I don’t have sponsors. I’ve never had that in my career so I’ve had to deal with my talent and nothing else.”
The Italian is hopeful of reaching a deal to race somewhere, but is focusing on finding an opportunity that will allow him to compete at a higher level than he was able to with the team then known as Lotus in 2010/11.
“We would like to do something at a higher level than what I’ve been doing for the last two years,” he said. “I spent the last two years at the back of the grid and it was a bit frustrating after spending my entire career fighting for the top.”
