Carlin has denied reports it is in the running to become F1's 13th team in 2011.

Headed by former Jordan boss Trevor Carlin, the outfit is the most successful in the history of British F3, and also races in GP3 and the Renault World Series.

Carlin said in a statement on Friday that it has "no plans to enter the 2011" formula one season because it has "not submitted an application" with F1's governing FIA.
