Fernando Alonso says that he does not mind who his Ferrari teammate is for next year, but would be happy for Felipe Massa to stay with the side.

Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso is adamant that he does not have a favourite for who he thinks should race with the team next season.

Both Nico Hulkenberg and Kimi Raikkonen have been linked with a switch to the famous red car at the end of the year after speculation surrounded the future of Felipe Massa.

Despite having no preference on who his partner should be, Alonso insists that he would be happy if Massa retained his spot with the team.

"It is a team decision, all the names for me are the same," Alonso told reporters.

"I have a huge respect for Felipe. He is a great professional driver working hard in the simulator and with the team."

Alonso and Massa finished second and fourth respectively at the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.
