The Wilson contour integral approach is applied to resum the soft gluon radiative correctins to the quark form factors in the Sudakov regime. The one-loop order results for the quark-photon (color singlet form factor) and quark-gluon (color non-singlet form factor) vertices are presented. The explicit expressions for the vacuum averaged contour integrals in g2 accuracy are derived for an arbitrary gauge field. The corresponding one-loop cusp anomalous dimensions are found in the case of perturbative gluon field in arbitrary covariant gauge. It is shown that the gauge dependence drops out from the leading high energy behavior.
