Aguri Suzuki on Wednesday admitted he is interested in returning to formula one team ownership.

With Honda backing, the former Japanese F1 driver fielded his Super Aguri entry in 2006 and 2007, then succumbed to financial problems after just four races last year.

But Suzuki, 48, could now be among numerous parties interested in the sport's budget-capped future beginning in 2010.

"If it's physically possible I would certainly like to (return to F1)," the veteran of 88 grands prix told Wednesday's edition of the Sankei Sports newspaper.

An emotional Suzuki said during an emotional press conference last May that he saw the F1 world as a "piranha club and I kind of feel that I don't want to stick my fingers back in".

He added: "If someone wants to take part in F1, I'm going to advise them that he better not."
