Daniil Kvyat is definitely staying at Toro Rosso next year.
Kvyat, 25, agreed that in his mind, returning to Red Bull is now a "closed chapter".
"I hear a lot of statements and people saying different things, but I am glad that I have a place in Formula 1 next year," he said.
"I love Toro Rosso and if I drive here more, it will be good."
Having debuted in 2019 and switched to Red Bull mid-season, Albon denied that he is under too much pressure.
"Everything is fine," he said at Sochi.
"I was given the opportunity to get comfortable and get to know the team.
"I know that many people think that I am under pressure, but I am not focused at all on next season and the negotiations."
Marko has said the decision will be made after Mexico in exactly a month. "There's still a few races until then," Albon smiled.
As for his rival for the seat, Pierre Gasly said on Thursday: "I do not want to think about 2020. I prefer to focus on my job.
"If I do a good job here, my future will solve itself."body check tags ::
