Ferrari’s Stefano Domenicali confirmed today that an announcement on the team’s 2014 driver plans is due soon – and insisted that no decision has yet been taken.
The consensus in the paddock in recent weeks is that the team will finally part company with Felipe Massa, with Kimi Raikkonen and Nico Hulkenberg the most likely candidates to replace him. A solid performance from the Brazilian in Monza might be too little too late to save him.
“The fact that we have not decided yet means that we are putting on the table all the elements,” said Domenicali tonight. “The fact that we are not taking that from the emotional point of view is because we want to put all the consideration before taking the right decision.
“And this is the reason why we shall let’s say announce and say something on that as soon as we finalise our discussion, because it is for sure not an easy decision for us, and this is something that we want to take the proper time in order to make sure that we take the best decision for our team.”
