Ferrari technical director Ross Brawn knows what he is doing next year - but he's not telling.

"I really don't want to comment until the end of the season," he said in Shanghai on Friday. "Then we can make things clear. I'm certainly not entertaining going to another team. But all will become clear at the end of the year."

There have been rumours in recent days that Brawn might be moving to Honda but that rumour has been put to bed by chief executive Nick Fry.

"We are absolutely intrigued by that one," he said. "I can categorically say that, apart from chatting with Ross on social pleasantries, there's been no contact whatsoever on a professional basis."

The smart money in recent months has been on Brawn taking a year out and then returning to Ferrari to take Jean Todt's role. No-one has denied that rumour.
