Abstract: Let $ f : M\to N$ be a map between simply connected $ n$-dimensional manifolds. We suppose that deg$ f\neq 0$. Then the injection of $ aut_1(N)$ into the component Map$ (M,N;f)$ of the mapping space containing $ f$ induces an injection on the rational homotopy groups, and the evaluation at the base point map$ (M,N;f)\to N$ is zero on the rational homotopy groups of even dimension.
