Despite being linked with a drive in the new USF1 team, Alexander Wurz has officially ruled out a return to the F1 cockpit.

Now 35, Alex last race in F1 for Williams in 2007, and is now a sports car racer with Peugeot, taking a second 24 Hours of Le Mans win last year.

Wurz was also involved in the Superfund F1 project which competed to bid for one of the vacant berths for the 2010 season, but its application was unsuccessful. Subsequent speculation linked the Austrian to USF1.

At this week’s AUTOSPORT International Festival, Wurz stated he is finished with F1 driving and will not make a comeback, saying, "I’ve changed from the show business to real business."

"After 13 years of F1, I’m very happy to be with Peugeot."
