Carlin racing team have denied they have submitted an entry to compete in F1 next year.
Racing director Trevor Carlin denied reports on some sites this morning claiming the team were gearing up for an F1 campaign in 2011:
While F1 may be a long-term goal for the team, we have not submitted an application for the 2011 season, nor are we in any position to do so. At the moment we are 100 per cent focused on our current programmes and continue to put all our efforts into winning championships and races in the junior categories.
Carlin currently run two cars in the World Series by Renault, six in British Formula Three and three in GP3. Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari won the British F3 championship with them in 2008, as did Red Bull reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo last year.
The FIA is expected to announce who has won the 13th place on the 2011 grid in August.
