BMW in no hurry to sort driver line-up

BMW motorsport director Mario Theissen says he is not feeling under any pressure to sort out his driver situation for next year.
Nick Heidfeld's new contract has yet to be confirmed, while the future of BMW Sauber's test driver Sebastian Vettel has also to be sorted amid speculation he could be placed at Scuderia Toro Rosso.
Although neither situation has been finalised yet, Theissen says he is in no rush to get things sorted.
"We haven't given a date," he said when asked by autosport.com about when an announcement about his driver plans would be made. "And I don't feel under any pressure."
Although Vettel and Heidfeld's strong form has left Theissen with a dilemma about his driver plans for 2008, he admits he is not too upset by the situation.
"It would be a problem to have less drivers than seats," he said.
