We reported earlier that, despite historic Monza often setting the scene for such an announcement, the Italian team is “not ready yet” amid ′s more chaotic than usual silly season.

“I know it’s hard for people to believe,” team boss Stefano Domenicali told Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper, “but we haven’t really stopped yet to think about it.

“Do you know why?” he asked correspondent Livio Oricchio rhetorically, referring to the undecided identity of ’s teammate next year.

Fernando Alonso was in a positive mood after free practice in Friday, despite ending the day a modest seventh.

However, headline times don’t always tell the full story, and the Spaniard insisted that made progress.

“This was a good day, even if in the morning we, and in fact everyone, lost time because of the rain, and so in the afternoon we found ourselves facing double the workload,” he said. “Before drawing any conclusions, we need to wait for the analysis of the data acquired this afternoon from both cars. Felipe (Massa, teammate) and I tried different aero configurations, with more and less downforce, which will be the real key to this race, along with the weather.

“In terms of today’s times, we have got closer to the favorites, but I’m not sure which weather forecast I would prefer. It’s true that in the rain, the cards on the table can be shuffled up, but in the wet there are as many chances to benefit as there are to lose.”
