P.de la Rosa
Pedro de la Rosa has been in Formula 1 since 1999 and is the second most experienced Spaniard in F1. He has shared a garage with four world champions: Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Kimi Raikkonen.
De la Rosa worked for McLaren and Pirelli in 2011 successfully testing the tyres used during the season for the Italian manufacturer.
He is the fourth driver in the history of Formula 1 to participate in most test days behind Luca Badoer, Alex Wurz and Jarno Trulli. The driver from Barcelona has helped to develop winning cars in 35 Grands Prix, the most memorable ones coming in the 2008 season in which Lewis Hamilton won the drivers' championship.
De la Rosa began competing in motorsport at the age of 17 before he was able to work his way up the categories before making it to F1.
His first contact with F1 came when he landed a role as a test driver for Jordan in 1998. In 1999 he took part in his first race at Melbourne with Arrows finishing sixth and scored a point.
He would spend one more year with the British team, followed by a two-year spell with Jaguar before arriving at McLaren in 2003 as a test and reserve driver. In 2010 he became a driver for Sauber but returned to McLaren the following season.
He is currently the drivers' representative on the FIA's Circuits Commission and collaborates with this institution. De la Rosa was also the president of the GPDA (Grand Prix Drivers' Association) in 2008 and 2009.
