Sebastien Loeb has admitted that inexperience may be the biggest obstacle to his desire to make his F1 debut for Toro Rosso in Abu Dhabi in less than three weeks.

In changeable weather, the multiple and current champion of world rallying drove a GP2 car at the series' group test in Jerez last week but was slightly off the pace.

In an interview posted afterwards on his official website, 35-year-old Loeb admitted he is not sure he feels ready to line up on a formula one grid.

"Today, I cannot say," the Frenchman answered. "I know that I lack driving with this type of (single seater) car. The inexperience is a handicap.

"Just now I don't know how good I would be if a possible opportunity to participate in a grand prix presented itself," Loeb added.
