Diniz's future with Prost or Sauber but not Minardi
Diniz, whose contract with Swiss-based Sauber expires at the end of the current season, has yet to decide over a move to Prost where his $8 million backing would go some way to funding the team's Ferrari engine deal.
But the 30-year-old has not yet ruled out his chances of staying with Sauber alongside newcomer Nick Heidfeld. He has, however, admitted a move to Minardi was not an option.
"I am definitely not going to Minardi," Diniz said. "Maybe I will go to Prost but nothing is done yet.
"I could also stay with Sauber. We are talking but there are no decisions from anybody yet."
