Pedro de la Rosa has been talking about his future in F1, having been ousted from Sauber in favour of Nick Heidfeld, only to find himself testing next year’s tyres for Pirelli. He is still keen on a race seat though, and hints at a link with the HRT team, saying he talks with the team owners quite a lot. “If the project is interesting and ambitious I would be glad to be with them. They know it, but at the moment there is no rush.”

Meanwhile, Bernie Ecclestone has hit out at teams, suggesting they spend too much time trying to bend the regulations to suit themselves, rather than the sport as a whole. He said: “What is good for Formula 1 is good for everybody involved - teams and companies. Too many people only think about what is good for them. It’s the same with the rules - they only think about what can make them win.” I’m not sure what has prompted this latest outburst but he also said: “They should probably all see that they run their own businesses properly and not worry about others.” Indeed.
