Andy Soucek has ruled out returning to the role of third driver with one of the smaller Formula One teams.

As reigning F2 champion, Soucek signed up as Virgin's test and reserve driver last year, but he quit in August due to not receiving any cockpit time.

"Frankly, I would not do it again if it was not with a top team," Soucek told Marca in Spain. "The testing is too limited and actually you don't even get in the car."
