Ross Brawn insists he has retired from Formula 1 for good, and he won't be returning to the sport in any capacity.

The former-Mercedes team principal has been linked to several roles, most notably that of team principal at McLaren following the return of Ron Dennis as chairman.

However, during a fishing event, he confirmed his future plans don't involve F1.

"This is the busiest time of the year for Formula 1 and I said I would come along and open the River Dee," he told the Telegraph.

"If they had put two and two together they would have realised I was definitely retiring.

"I'm retiring - it's not tongue in cheek," he reiterated.

"I'm going to take a year to enjoy the fishing and then see what life brings.

"I'm looking forward to it but I've got no other plans."
