Austrian Alex Wurz, a former Formula One racer and double Le Mans 24 Hours sportscar winner, announced his retirement on Tuesday.

The 41-year-old said he would hang up his helmet as a professional racing driver after competing in this weekend's final Bahrain round of the FIA world endurance championship for Toyota.

In F1, Wurz raced for Benetton, McLaren and Williams and made three podium appearances - one with each team between 1997 and 2007.
