Nico Hulkenberg has a seat on the F1 grid for 2014 according to fresh rumours in the F1 paddock.

The German has been subject to increased speculation with an uncertain future despite recent good performances.

Indeed after finishing fourth in Korea, 'Hulk' followed it up with a fifth place at the Japanese Grand Prix this past weekend.

What the rumours can't decide on however, is where that seat will be, according to Italy's influential sports daily La Gazzetta dello Sport: "The German will team up with (Romain) Grosjean," suggesting Lotus are Hulkenberg's new employers.

Other well-connected insiders however believe a return to Force India is on the cards while some believe the 26-year-old will be remaining at Sauber.

Former team-owner and now BBC pundit Eddie Jordan, who is renown for his ability to predict driver moves, has sided with those claiming Force India will be Hulkenberg's final destination.

As for Hulkenberg himself, he is giving nothing away; "My future will sort itself in a couple of weeks," he said to reporters, denying he has "signed anything" for 2014.

Another British based pundit however, former McLaren driver Martin Brundle, claims he too understands Hulkenberg has a seat for 2014, though he is refusing to say where.

Brundle said that the reason teams confided with him was because they knew he would not leak confidential information into the public domain, however some are linking the fact his comments came in the presence of Hulkenberg's current team boss, Sauber's Monisha Kaltenborn.

However Germany's Spiegel claimed a move to Lotus is on the cards but Hulkenberg is "waiting until after the talks with Sauber before making a decision"
