Robert Kubica on Thursday confirmed that he was also a candidate to switch to Ferrari to replace the struggling Luca Badoer.

Ultimately the wearer of the red team wear at Monza and beyond is Giancarlo Fisichella, but reports had suggested the Pole Kubica, whose future is unclear in the wake of BMW's decision to pull out of F1, was also in contention for the seat.

"Well, I think I'm in white (team wear), so there's no more speculation," he told reporters in Italy.

"Yeah, there was some contact and I was in the interest of Ferrari but I don't think it's so easy to change teams during the year and anyway, I think we will have a competitive car here with BMW, so I'm happy to be where I am," the 24-year-old added.

Kubica said his management is currently working on his plans for the 2010 season.

His current teammate Nick Heidfeld admitted that staying at BMW-Sauber in 2010 if the Swiss based team finds a buyer is an option.

"But there's actually not much going on at the moment because nobody knows if (the team will survive) or who will be there, so there's nobody to speak to," said the German.
