Out-of-work British F1 engineer Mike Gascoyne has admitted that he is likely to be based outside of the UK for his next job.

Out-of-work British F1 engineer Mike Gascoyne has admitted that he is likely to be based outside of the UK for his next job.

It emerged last week that the 45-year-old, who has also worked for teams including Renault and Toyota, commenced legal action against Force India following his recent premature dismissal.

In the regional English newspaper Oxford Times, it is reported that Gascoyne's country house in West Oxfordshire has been put up for sale for about 2.5m euros.

"I will probably work abroad in the future so will not need such a large home in the UK," he is quoted as saying.

Gascoyne entered formula one in 1989 as a young aerodynamicist with McLaren, subsequently working in technical management roles for Tyrrell, Swiss-based Sauber, Jordan, Renault and Cologne based Toyota.
