Bertrand Baguette has revealed he is no longer on the market for a Formula One seat.

As the new Renault World Series champion, the 24-year-old Belgian tested with the Renault team and also Sauber late last year.

But after failing to secure a role for 2010, he accepted a seat in the US-based Indycar series.

"I have received offers to participate in the upcoming test in Abu Dhabi, but I don't care to spend our budget on a programme that I suspect will not lead to anything," Baguette is quoted by the Belga news agency.

"Instead, I am focused on Indycar, where I have the feeling I can build a career.

"I don't want to spend any more of my time looking for an opening in F1, where a driver who has proved himself in the lower categories is not given a chance," he added.
