Mark Webber insists his future in Formula 1 remains open for now - after saying he would consider a switch to another team for 2012 if Red Bull Racing chooses not to extend his contract.
The Australian has favoured a rolling year-by-year contract at his current outfit, and the team is in no rush to sort out a fresh deal for now.
That has prompted speculation about his future - with Ferrari already being singled out as a possible destination for him if the Italian outfit opts not to extend Felipe Massa's contract.
Speaking to Italian newspaper La Stampa, Webber has said that his future is not settled - and that he will only make a call about his plans when Red Bull Racing has made its own mind up.
"I have my flaws, but I'm determined," he told the newspaper. "Last year I fought for the title, and I want to go for it again. I'm relaxed and I feel I can do it, until the end.
"When the season ends my contract with Red Bull will expire. I don't think a possible renewal depends on the results. I want to win for myself too. We'll see.
"If the team doesn't want me anymore, I will have to respond to a good question: to hang up the helmet, or to change teams?"
