Pedro de la Rosa has understandably moved to quell recent speculation that indicates he could lose his race seat at the Sauber team.

Despite the 39-year-old Spaniard coming drafted with a wealth of testing experience at McLaren, team boss Peter Sauber recently began to question his decision to appoint de la Rosa and team-mate Kamui Kobayashi.

Speaking with Spain’s AS newspaper, de la Rosa said: “It is best to ask Peter Sauber but it [Sauber’s comments] is something that does not worry me.

“We have had very poor reliability, but that is down to isolated cases, so I’m concentrating on my work and on getting points when we can."

Venezuelan wallet Pastor Maldonado – waiting in the wing with a big haul of sponsors in tow – is linked as a possible replacement for the Spaniardi’s racing seat.
