The American outfit Cypher Group has pulled out of the running to race in formula one next year.

The group had applied for the 13th 2011 team entry and was reportedly in talks with American driver Jonathan Summerton and possibly also Nelson Piquet Jr.

It had also emerged that former Brawn engineer Steve Brown, who previously worked on the similarly failed USF1 project, was part of the Cypher effort.
