Now towards the end of its existing three-season deal, the Italian marque has made clear it wants to stay.

But "Time is pressing on," motor sport director Paul Hembery is quoted by Britain's Sky.

"For sure we should not be here in June or July, talking about how things are going," said Briton Hembery.
