Amid reports Felipe Massa is close to securing a new contract for 2013, team boss Stefano Domenicali insists Ferrari is in "no hurry" to make a decision. "At this point I have nothing to add," he is quoted by Spain's AS sports newspaper.

The publications Blick (Switzerland) and Auto Motor und Sport (Germany) have reported that a new deal for Massa is imminent, while the 31-year-old told Brazil's 'Lance!' that he thinks he is "very close" to securing a 2013 contract. "We have no hurry to make our decisions," Domenicali insisted.

"If Felipe keeps up the good performances he has done in the last few races it will be good for the team to fight for the constructors' title, and good for him as well. And at the proper time, we will take the decision. I know there's a lot of pressure from the outside, but we are going to talk with Felipe at the right time, taking into account all the parameters," added Domenicali.

Meanwhile, when asked if he could only choose between world champions Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel as a future Ferrari driver, Domenicali answered simply: "Vettel." (GMM)
