The rumours about the veteran Brazilian's return had even mentioned the possibility he might race for the Swiss team at Interlagos this November, but Kaltenborn ruled that out.

"I don't see any possibility there because we have no reason to change our two drivers for that race," the Sauber team boss told reporters in Korea.

But as for the speculation 41-year-old Barrichello - who has raced in Indycar and Brazilian touring cars since losing his Williams seat in 2011 - might be Sergey Sirotkin's teammate in 2014, Kaltenborn sounded more open-minded.

"There are a couple of options out there," she said.

"We know what he (Barrichello) has -- his experience, we know that he'd like to come back. So let's see."
