Robert Kubica has admitted he wants to do "something different" next year, rather than continuing in the World Rally Championship.
The ex-Formula 1 driver has competed in rallying full-time for the last three years - in Citroens and M-Sport-built Fords - but he has become increasingly frustrated by the lack of opportunities to secure a factory seat.
While the Pole is likely to be seen on some rallies, a move back to circuit racing appears increasingly certain.
Asked if he had any news on his 2016 programme on the eve of Rally Spain, he said: "Yes and no.
"I don't know exactly what I will be doing, I have something in my mind.
"I would be surprised to do WRC all season - there will be a change. I don't know if I [will] do WRC at all or not, for sure there will be something different.
"I have changed a bit in my mind. Three years ago, I come back after the accident and I was looking for a new challenge - rallying was a very big challenge.
"Next year is the time to have something different and probably end up doing some different things and maybe the rally as well."
Kubica has previously stated he would be ready to step back to WRC2 to fight at the front of a category, and dovetailing a six- or seven-round rally programme with circuit racing is a strong possibility.
The 30-year-old tested DTM machinery with Mercedes in 2013 and has fielded offers from teams in a variety of categories in recent years.
