Ferrari team Principal Stefano Domenicali hints that the Italian outfit will arrange a statement about Fernando Alonso’s team-mate for future; Felipe Massa is still in the register.

Some reports say that the Italian outfit will make an announcement following the Indian Grand Prix at the final weekend of the October.

Few ex-drivers recommended that the Force India’s duo Paul di Resta or Nico Hulkenberg, as possible for Alonso’s team-mate. Also some other rumor surrounded in paddock that Hulkenberg possibility to join Sauber for next season.

“No. I don’t have. But anyway we wait for the time,” Massa reacted when asked whether he is uncertain about his future.

“When you get the OK from both directions that is when you are sure. I think it will be pretty soon to be honest.”

Team Principal Stefano Domenicali has also hinted that a new contract for Massa is on the list.

“I think that for sure he understands now better the car, he understands better the tyres – and also the fact Felipe is a very, very strong driver because otherwise we would have already taken a different decision.

“So I feel that now when Felipe has under his control the understanding of the tyres and car, he performs at the level he should. Very soon you will know what will be our position on that respect,” he said.
