Juan Pablo Montoya has confirmed he has received and turned down offers to return to formula one.

Juan Pablo Montoya has confirmed he has received and turned down offers to return to formula one.

The 33-year-old Colombian left the category in the middle of a difficult season with McLaren in 2006, after a promising earlier career that netted him 7 wins.

Now settled in America's premier NASCAR series, Montoya insists he is "not interested in returning to F1".

"I am very happy in the US, and so is my family. Truthfully, it has never gone through my head to go back to formula one.

"What's more, even if McLaren or Ferrari wanted me, I would not go," he said in an interview with the Spanish news agency EFE.

It is suggested that Toro Rosso, and perhaps other teams, have been in contact with Montoya since he switched codes.

"I rejected these offers," he confirmed. "I'm not interested."
