BMW Sauber names de la Rosa as second driver

BY foxsports • January 19, 2010

BMW Sauber has named Pedro de la Rosa as its second driver this season, joining Kamui Kobayashi.

The 38-year-old Spaniard has driven for Arrows and Jaguar and was a test and reserve driver for McLaren for seven years.

Team principal Peter Sauber said that ``we as a team stand to gain from his experience, and the same goes for young Kamui.''

De la Rosa said that ``I always firmly believed I would be given another chance as a team driver.''

The team last month was awarded the 13th entry into this year's Formula One world championship, taking the place of the departing Toyota.
