Brazilian driver Felipe Massa is to stay at Ferrari next season, Ferrari announced on Tuesday, amid speculation that he could make way for double Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel.

“Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has renewed its contract with the driver Felipe Massa to the end of the 2013 race season," the Italian racing outfit said on its website ferrari.com.

“The Scuderia's driver line-up for next year is therefore made up of Fernando Alonso and the aforementioned Felipe Massa.”

On Monday, the president of Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo, rejected reports that Germany's Vettel was on his way to the team to partner Spaniard Alonso for the 2014 season, depening on results next year.

Vettel, who currently drives for Red Bull, is top of the drivers' championship ahead of Alonso. Massa, who made his debut in 2002, is ninth.

Hulkenberg speculations
Nico Hulkenberg will leave Sahara Force India and join fast-growing Sauber for the 2013 season, according to a BBC report on Tuesday. Hulkenberg, who was rumoured to be moving to Ferrari, finished sixth at the Korean Grand Prix. Sauber have not yet officially confirmed.
