Geoff Willis is not returning to Formula One with Sauber.

The Briton was one of the most well-known technical directors in the sport, but he mysteriously left Red Bull in the middle of last season.

He has also worked with Williams and McLaren, and more recently he was ousted from his position at Honda.

There was speculation late in 2009 that he could return this year with Ferrari or Sauber, but the Swiss camp earlier this month said its technical team will continue to be led by Willy Rampf.

It is believed Willis had been in talks with the new Qadbak management, but when that buyout fell through, founder Peter Sauber opted for a different route.
