This time however, he turned down the offer.

“It's not everyday that you receive the call of a Formula 1 team to drive,” said the German to Autosport magazine.

“I don't want to run near the back of the pack. It would be a different story if I would get in a better car, but it doesn't seem like it”, he added.
