Victorious Indianapolis 500 driver Dan Wheldon admits he would love a move to Formula One, but only on his terms.
The 27-year-old became the first Briton to win US motorsport's biggest race since Graham Hill in 1966.
"Formula One is something I would love to do but I would not want to go there just to make up the numbers," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"I would want to do the job properly, with a team that will allow me to go for the title."
Sunday's triumph was Wheldon's fourth win out of the first five Indy Racing League races and increases his lead in the overall standings.
And the Andretti Green driver, who moved to the United States in 1999, is fully aware of how important his victory was.
"I'm certainly a big fan of history and tradition," he added. "Just to achieve what Graham Hill and Jim Clark did makes me really proud. It's very special.
"Those guys were already in Formula One at the time or had been back and forth.
"I have not gone that route, but this is very special because it is the pinnacle of motorsport."
