F1 and Champ Car doubleheader in Vegas?

(GMM) Oriol Servia has ruled out switching to formula one.

The Spanish Champ Car driver, who even tested a F1 car in the past, would be forgiven for hoping to ride the crest of Fernando Alonso's popularity wave, but at Indianapolis admitted that the pinnacle of motor sport had passed him by.

''I'm 31 so, for me, the possibility has gone,'' Servia, who met up with his friend Pedro de la Rosa, was quoted as saying by 'AS' newspaper.

''I got fairly close with Prost a few years ago, but now I will be happy if I stay another eight years where I am.''

'AS' also reported on Friday that F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone intends to break off negotiations with Indianapolis and instead concentrate on bringing his sport to Las Vegas.

The newspaper said the US grand prix could then be run in conjunction with Champ Car, in order to boost the interest of the public.

But Servia insisted: ''I don't think Bernie would accept that the two championships are mixed together like that.''
