The report seemed to tie in with rumours Webber, 36, has agreed a deal to return to Le Mans next year with Porsche.

But he is quoted by Russia's f1news.ru: "It (Le Mans) is an interesting category, but it's not for me.

"At the moment I'm still focused on Formula One. There are always a lot of rumours, some strange ones, but I don't pay much attention to it."
