Celebrating a two-car finish which saw Robert Kubica leapfrog Kimi Raikkonen in the Drivers' Championship, BMW boss Mario Theissen continues to keep things close to his chest in terms of his 2009 driver line-up.

While Kubica is almost certain to stay, there is continued speculation as to the future of Nick Heidfeld who has had a hit and miss season.

An excellent performance, combined with shrewd tyre strategy, at Spa, resulted in the German finishing second/third, however, his lack of race consistency and poor qualifying performances have left a question mark over the former F3000 champion.

As journalists continue to pressurise Theissen for a clue as to his proposed line-up, the German responded with the following.

"The only thing I can say regarding this issue is that we are not pressed for time. Therefore, we will take our time over this decision, waiting until the season is over.

"After all," he added, "it's not important to make a fast decision but to make the right decision."
