Fernando Alonso on Thursday revealed he has made his mind up about his employer for the 2010 season, but not yet signed a contract with that team.

It is now perpetually speculated that the Renault driver will move to Ferrari next year to replace Kimi Raikkonen.

In typically theatrical fashion, Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo admitted 24 hours ago that Felipe Massa's next teammate will be either Finnish or Spanish.

"My mind is already made up," Alonso, 27, told reporters in Singapore when asked about his next team in F1.

However, he said a contract has not yet been signed, meaning he is not sure what colour uniform he will be wearing at the Bahrain season opener next March.

"Hopefully I will know soon," he added.

Raikkonen was also asked about the rumours on Thursday, and in light of Montezemolo's latest comments admitted that the identity of his team for 2010 is now less certain than before.

"I have a contract and I guess they want to talk about it, but nothing has really changed since the last race or the race before," said the Finn.
