Despite being linked with a drive with USF1 this year, Alex Wurz has said that he has no intention of returning to Formula 1.

He last raced in F1 in 2007, with Williams. Since then, he has been a factory sportscar driver with Peugeot, and scored his second Le Mans win last year.

In 2009, he was involved in the Superfund F1 project, but was not given an entry by the FIA. Ever since then, rumours of his return have been circulating. However, he has said that he is not making a comeback:

“No. I’ve changed from the show business to the real business,” he said at the Autosport International.

“Just look at the Peugeot or the Bentley [on display] here. Since my childhood I always loved sportscars. After 13 years of F1, I’m very happy to be with Peugeot, going to Sebring and hopefully some other races as well as Le Mans.”
