Fernando Alonso has not held talks to leave Ferrari despite Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel hinting at a future move to the Italian giants.
"Right now I'm very happy where I am and I'm really not thinking about what I'll do in the future, but I wouldn't rule out racing for Ferrari. You should never say never in life, but right now I'm very happy," said the reigning world champion.
Alonso joined Ferrari in 2010 but having struggled to win the world drivers' title some reports claim he is ready to leave the team.
And with Jenson Button's contract at McLaren set to expire at the end of the season recent reports suggest Alonso may eventually replace him – leaving a place available at Ferrari.
The Spaniard has fuelled the speculation regarding his future, admitting that his Ferrari career is uncertain despite maintaining he is yet to hold talks with rival teams.
"Every year now I get asked this question in July, maybe since I started in 2003. I haven't talked with any other team and it's not my priority," he was quoted by Marca.
Looking ahead to the weekend's German Grand Prix, Alonso added: "We have to score some good points this weekend and get some good results this year."
"We have some new parts that will hopefully bring some performance, but we know that it is going to be tough. Our target is to beat some of our main competitors in the constructors' championship. Between second and fifth or sixth in the constructors' championship it is getting very tight and it will be very tight until the end of the season.
"Here is our next opportunity to decrease the gap to Red Bull and increase the gap with Williams and McLaren, but they are coming very strong. That is the target and I think it is going to be interesting."
