Campos: We want to sign de la Rosa

Adrian Campos, team boss of new F1 team Campos, who will make their debut in the sport in 2010, has said that he is openly trying to reach a deal with McLaren test and reserve driver Pedro de la Rosa.

In an interview with Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Campos said that he had planned to announce his driver line-up during the European Grand Prix race weekend. Campos had hoped to finalise a deal with de la Rosa ahead of the race weekend however an agreement has not yet been reached which is why the team have yet to reveal their 2010 drivers.

If de la Rosa is given a race-seat with the Campos team, at 38, he would become the oldest F1 racing driver currently in the sport.

During the interview, Campos also revealed that he is hoping for a mix of experience and youth in his driver line-up and that he wasn t specifically looking for Spanish drivers. Dropping names, Campos revealed that he felt GP2 racers Sergio Perez, Bruno Senna and Vitaly Petrov all deserved a chance in F1.
