Ross Brawn insists that he has only one team in mind should he decide to return from his current sabbatical, and that rumours that he is talking to anyone other than Ferrari are not to be believed.

According to the BBC, the erstwhile technical director is already talking to the Italian team about a return, dismissing speculation that he might have been put off reuniting with the Maranello concern because of the ongoing spy scandal involving it and McLaren. Denying rumours that he has been approached by Honda, Brawn insists that the Prancing Horse is his one and only option.

"Ferrari asked me to discuss future options with them when I was ready to return to the sport, [and] we have now begun these talks," he is quoted by the BBC website, "After ten fantastic years, the people and culture of Ferrari and Italy is in my blood and Ferrari is my team. Ferrari is the only team or group I have discussed my future with, [and] reports linking me with other teams are either inaccurate or speculation."

Honda continues to tease the F1 world with suggestions that it is poised to appoint a senior technical director to head up a team bolstered by recent signings, leading to the speculation that Brawn may be tempted to return to the UK after enjoying a decade of success with Michael Schumacher and the Ferrari 'dream team' which is now gradually breaking up following the German's retirement in 2006.
