DTM driver Marco Wittmann has conceded that it is unlikely he will ever race in Formula One.
The BMW driver won the German touring car series in 2014, and is a favourite to win this year's title as well.
But although he has tested for Toro Rosso in the past, Wittmann doesn't think he will be racing in F1 any time soon.
"I do not have the money," he told Kicker. "So I remain a realist and say to myself 'There are other things'."
"Formula one is definitely the dream of every racing driver," he said, "but when I see what all the young drivers have to bring in terms of money, then it's really, really extreme."
Despite enjoying his previous test in F1 machinery, the German is content racing at the front in DTM
"It was a really great experience and a great opportunity for me," said the 26-year-old. "But I prefer to be a factory driver for BMW at the front in DTM, winning podiums and races, than driving for a backmarker team hoping to finish 18th."
"Personally, I believe that the level of the drivers in DTM is higher even than in Formula One," Wittmann added.
