A Ferrari chief has once again left the door open to Fernando Alonso joining the famous Italian team in the future.

Recent reports claimed the 27-year-old twice world champion had penned some sort of agreement to switch from Renault in either 2010 or 2011.

Both Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen remain under contract, but Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said in December that although he is happy with the pair, "maybe in two years I will tell you something different".

At the Madonna di Campiglio ski resort in the Italian Dolomites on Wednesday, Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali was asked a similar question about the future of the Maranello based team's driver lineup.

"It is difficult to add anything new on this subject. Our drivers are under contract and we are happy with them. In the future, who knows?" he said at the media event.

"We must concentrate on the present. Fernando is a great driver but we are happy with our two."

Domenicali also clarified that Ferrari's current drivers share equal billing, despite the fact that although Brazilian Massa finished just shy of the drivers' title in 2008, he will this year again wear the lower race number.

"We don't favour one driver over the other," the team boss insisted.

"They get the same opportunities and at the end of the season they are judged on their performances."
