Adrian Sutil's manager has denied media reports his client is in talks with Ferrari with a view to replacing Felipe Massa in 2013.

11624 - Manager plays down Sutil links with Ferrari

Sutil, who lost his seat at Force India earlier this month, has been linked with Williams where he would replace Rubens Barrichello, but in the last few days rumours circulated he was meeting with Ferrari.

"We are definitely not in talks with Ferrari," Manfred Zimmermann said. "They are definitely not an option. Of course, it is the dream of every driver and manager."

If Williams did not offer Sutil race seat, then his only chance of a place in the grid in 2012 would seem to be at HRT where Tonio Liuzzi's position has still to be confirmed.

"There are still options to stay in Formula One and we are negotiating currently," Zimmermann said. "At the moment we can't say anything more."
