Apr.28 (GMM) Spain’s motor racing federation is helping Pedro de la Rosa to secure some personal sponsorship.

Carlos Gracia, a friend and supporter of the Spanish driver and also president of the Real Federacion Espanola de Automoviliso (RFEDA), was responding to yet more speculation about the future of de la Rosa’s Sauber race seat.

After boss Peter Sauber expressed dismay with the time it is taking the 39-year-old to reacclimatise to racing, pay drivers including Pastor Maldonado and Luca Filippi have been linked with his job.

“Today there is no indication that he (de la Rosa) will not finish the season with them,” Gracia is quoted as saying by AS newspaper.

He added: “In Pedro’s contract he does not have to contribute money, but we are working on getting some sponsors.”

    It would be fun to see Pastor Maldonada in F1. He always ran well in GP2. Pedro has been a tester for so long, I think that is his forte. Not racing.
