Campos gives hope to de la Rosa

Pedro de la Rosa could yet secure a drive with Campos Meta F1 for 2010 as team president admits he is the 'only Spanish option' for newcomers
Jose Ramon Carabante, the president of the Campos Meta team, has admitted that Pedro de la Rosa remains in contention for a drive with the F1 newcomers for 2010.

De la Rosa had looked like missing out on a drive when team boss Adrian Campos revealed that the search for Spanish backers was proving to be tough, but Carabante insists that talks with the McLaren test driver are ongoing.

“There is a possibility that the seat which remains could be for a Spanish driver and, of course, it would be a dream for it to be Pedro de la Rosa,” he was quoted on Spanish radio. “Negotiations with Pedro have never stopped.

“If we are able to cover the budget, based on negotiations, the first option is to bring in Pedro. Being Spanish, we would be delighted to have him in our team, but it depends very much on sponsorship.

As far as Spanish drivers go at the moment, de la Rosa is the only option.”

Campos has already named Bruno Senna as one of its two drivers for 2010, while another driver mentioned – Alvaro Parente – has now signed as test driver with Virgin Racing.
