De la Rosa: dead live longer

After 2005, 2006 and 2010 celebrates Pedro de la Rosa in Montreal, his fourth comeback in Formula 1 - decision until ten minutes before the start of training After a disappointing 2002 season with Jaguar seemed the career of Pedro de la Rosa has already ended. That winter, hardly anyone would have bet that the likeable Spaniard once in Formula 1 would return the left - let alone in 2011 aged 40 years, yet it would always be. But know, dead live longer.

Even for well-informed Paddock journalists first came the pictures from the second free practice in Montreal, surprisingly, Sauber as with the Spanish flag and a De la Rosa sticker was shown a sudden. Background: Sergio Perez felt too good lunch is not felt - completely unexpected to outsiders - the aftermath of his qualifying accident in Monte Carlo. So it was a very short time to find replacement.
 

Well wishes towards Perez

The McLaren test driver has indicated that after the first "ten minutes before the start of the session" from his new (fourth) comeback learn : That was certainly the latest nomination of my whole career, "I am very happy that I released McLaren and Sauber has meant to me when it came to replace Sergio, which I do on this path of recovery would prompt way. "

But one must ask: If the decision until ten minutes was taken before, why Sauber had a sticker with his name at hand? Apparently, de la Rosa was contacted but during the week: "I was told that there is a very small chance, if not feel Sergio probably should, that's right," he admits. "But now I did not expect, because Sergio seemed to be really fit. So I made no hope."
