Ferrari driver decision within days - Domenicali (GMM) Stefano Domenicali on Sunday admitted Ferrari is seriously considering whether to replace Luca Badoer ahead of the forthcoming Italian grand prix at Monza.
"For sure Ferrari doesn't want to be last," said the famous team's boss at Spa-Francorchamps, after Badoer qualified and finished at the tail of the field for a second consecutive weekend, while in the sister car Kimi Raikkonen won.
It is suggested Ferrari will plump for the Belgian GP pole and podium sitter Giancarlo Fisichella, but Domenicali would not be drawn during his post-race conversation with reporters in Belgium.
"With regard with what we are going to do for the next races we will tell you in the next three days," he revealed.
"We are going to take all into consideration, it depends how the medical checkup that Felipe (Massa) will do tomorrow (goes) and then we will put on the table all the different things. And then we will make a decision," Domenicali said.
38-year-old Badoer however was not singing from the same hymn-sheet, insisting he will be a contender for points in front of the Italian 'tifosi' at Monza.
"In Monza I think for sure I start with the idea to get in the points range," he said, despite holding the record for the most races (50) without a single point.
Fisichella's current boss Vijay Mallya, owner of the Force India team, was also giving nothing away about the continuing speculation after Sunday's race.
"I don't want to talk about speculation. I have not been approached by anyone yet," the Indian said.
