Bianchi downplays Ferrari rumours

Bianchi downplays Ferrari rumours

Jules Bianchi is not expecting a call from Ferrari any time soon as he says the Italian stable has two drivers contracted for next season.

There has been some speculation of late that Bianchi could step up to Ferrari in 2015 in light of Kimi Raikkonen's stuttering return.

As the Finn's struggles continue so too do reports that he could walk away at the end of this season.

Should that happen Bianchi, who broke his duck in Monaco when he finished ninth, has been tipped to replace him.

The Frenchman, though, has downplayed the speculation.

"They have a contract with both drivers for next year and I don't think they will change that," he told Crash.net.

"What I need to do is keep focusing on my job with Marussia and do the best job that I can."

Bianchi however is hoping that next season he will be with a team that can regularly fight for top ten finishes but hasn't ruled out Marussia being that team.

"I want to be in a place where I can fight for points," he said.

"It can be here because if some people invest in this team then for sure we can do a much better job and be quicker.

"We are doing a great job with what we have at the moment, but with more money we can be more competitive.

"I am Ferrari's driver, so it is in their interest to put me in a better place."
