Pedro de la Rosa is still holding out hopes he can remain in Formula 1 in 2011, with reports from his native Spain indicating that the 39-year-old is seeking a role as a third driver with a Formula 1 team this year.
Rumours from the recent Barcelona test have suggested that McLaren Group chairman Ron Dennis may have met with his former team’s ex-test driver while he paid a visit to the Spanish city to meet with McLaren’s sponsor, Santander.
McLaren has itself denied the report, but the EFE news agency claims that de la Rosa remains hopeful on securing a role with an F1 team for this year.
