Although Luiz Razia has not given up on F1, the Brazilian concedes it won't be easy finding a seat for next season.
Razia came within days of making his debut with Marussia in 2013, however, when his sponsorship deal collapsed so too did his contract with team.
And after his attempt failed, the 24-year-old now admits it won't be easy for him to find a place on next year's grid.
"It's impossible to know what will happen in F1 but to be honest it is not easy for me," he told TotalRace.
"I do have other options."
One of those options is the IndyCar series with Razia revealing that a "career in the Americas as Indy" could be on the cards.
But, he added, "there is nothing set" as he has "not given up the F1."
