Campos Deny Pedro de la Rosa Rumors

Campos Grand Prix yesterday denied the latest suggestions linking 38-year old veteran Pedro de la Rosa with a 2-year race seat with the Spanish team in Formula One. During the course of last weekend, several media reports hinted that Adrian Campos has already signed the current McLaren test driver, with the official announcement to take place during the European Grand Prix, almost one month from now.

According to Spanish news agency EFE, Campos refused to confirm that information, insisting that no final decision was taken regarding the 2010 lineup. That means the newly entrants are yet to sign a driver for their first season in Formula One, while De la Rosa has to wait a little longer before opening a bottle of champagne.

Campos did confirm, however, that at least the name of one driver to race for his team next year might be unveiled at Valencia. Obviously, he did not give any further information on his identity.

Under the circumstances, De la Rosa should not make plans for next season just yet, as he might be stuck with his test driving job for McLaren for at least one more year. With his seat at Campos GP not so certain anymore, the competition for a race spot in 2010 is getting tougher by the day.

Only when it comes to Campos GP, no less than 3 young promising drivers are linked with a potential drive for the Spanish outfit next year: Bruno Senna, Sergio Perez and Sebastien Buemi's cousin Natacha Gachnang (currently driving in F2). From the three drivers, the first two are believed to benefit from consistent financial backing from private sponsors to land an F1 job in 2010.
