Fernando Alonso on Thursday denied the latest round of suggestions that he is set to switch to Ferrari.

Authoritative arms of the Spanish and Italian press now agree that the 27-year-old could switch to the Maranello based team in 2010, with an official announcement in September or November.

"As usual, all of these are only rumours," the Spaniard told reporters at the Nurburgring ahead of this weekend's German Grand Prix. "They have been happening in the last four or five years all the time."

Interestingly, while the Alonso-Ferrari linkup is regarded as the worst-kept secret in F1, the Renault driver answered "no" twice when asked if has either inked a contract or held any talks with the famous Italian team.
