Alex Wurz has confirmed speculation that he is a possible contender for a race seat with the new USF1 team next year.

USF1 co-principal Peter Windsor in Hungary this weekend admitted the veteran Austrian might match the team's plans to pit an experienced driver alongside a young American in 2010.

"A decision hasn't been made," Wurz, 35, clarified in interview with motorline.cc on Sunday.

"Peter has known me for a long time, he knows my qualities for developing and testing and that often I can identify things faster than some others. And when you're making a new team, that could be an advantage.

"He has asked me if I think we could work together," the veteran of 69 Grands Prix, and many intervening years as a highly respected test driver, revealed.
