After walking away from the sport at the end of 2009, the talented Finn and former title winner switched to world rallying and on Friday finished 15th on his debut in the low-tier pickup truck NASCAR series.

Asked in Charlotte about his controversial decision to quit Formula One as one of its highest rated and paid drivers, he is quoted as responding by Turun Sanomat newspaper: "There were many reasons.

"But I haven't said it is final. Currently I don't miss F1. I wanted to do different things and now have had a great opportunity to try NASCAR.

"I haven't said I will never go back to F1," added the 31-year-old. "At the moment I have no plans for what I am going to do next year."
