Alex Wurz admits he has been approached to take over as Manor's team principal. It was confirmed at Interlagos this weekend that boss John Booth and deputy Graeme Lowdon have both resigned and will leave the team after Abu Dhabi.

So Manor has announced that Dave Ryan, the former long-time McLaren sporting director who stepped down in 2009 amid the 'lie-gate' scandal, is returning to F1 next year to be the British backmarker's new 'racing director'. And Austrian Wurz, who earlier this week announced his retirement as a racing driver, admitted in Brazil he has been approached to be Manor's team boss.

When asked by Kleine Zeitung newspaper on Wednesday what his next steps in motor sport will be, the former F1 driver answered: "I can't say too much about that now." On Saturday he had to admit there have been talks with Manor. "I would have preferred it not be out in public but I can't deny it," said the 41-year-old, who last raced in F1 with Williams in 2007.
