Romain Grosjean says that Ferrari's Fernando Alonso holds the key to this year's driver market, ahead of the Italian Grand Prix.

Silly season is in full swing at Monza, with Alonso linked with a move away from Ferrari despite his repeated assertions that he will remain with the squad in 2015.

Grosjean believes that once Alonso's future is clear, the rest of the pieces will fall into place.

"It's been quite quiet to be fair, nothing crazy," he said.

"You have to wait for Ferrari and Alonso and by then the market will have moved. I'm sure you are aware as much as I am, if not more, and so far nothing has moved much.

"You can always do speculation and from what I know all the other drivers have a contract in the big teams. Alonso is the key of the market."
