Jan.16 (GMM) Ferrari's current drivers have dismissed as mere rumours reports that Fernando Alonso is set to join the Maranello based team at some point in the future.
Both Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa are under contract for 2009 and 2010, but the Italian press recently said the Spaniard Alonso, currently at Renault, has penned an agreement to switch to Ferrari by 2011.It is said that Raikkonen is the most likely to step aside, after he refused to pledge his future to the sport beyond the expiry of his current deal."I'm not worried about rumours," he told reporters at Ferrari's 'Wrooom' media event in the Italian Dolomites."I don't feel under pressure, I have a two year contract and we'll see what happens after that."I wouldn't be here if I didn't have the motivation or the hunger to be here anymore," the Finn said.Brazilian Massa, who finished one point shy of Lewis Hamilton's 2008 title triumph, said the rumours about Alonso joining Ferrari are nothing new."So far I haven't seen him in Ferrari," he joked. "Rumours are rumours -- sometimes they come true and sometimes not."
