Alex Wurz remains adamant that he is contracted to be Brawn GP's third and reserve driver in 2009.

There has been some confusion as to whether Wurz, already under contract for this year according to his previous Honda deal, or the less expensive Anthony Davidson, will attend the grands prix this year in case Brawn's regular drivers are unable to race.

But Austrian Wurz, 35, told Germany's Sport Bild: "I am the third driver.

"If one of the drivers cannot for any reason drive, I will substitute him," he clarified.

"In addition I am a sort of connection between the drivers and the team," said Wurz.

Briton Davidson, in Malaysia to commentate for British television, would not comment specifically about whether he is Brawn's current reserve driver.
