De La Rosa Must Find €10million To Secure HRT Seat

Pedro de la Rosa must secure sponsorship and financial backing of at least €10million to gain a race seat with the Hispania HRT team for 2011 it has been revealed.

The Spanish minnow team have been struggling financially throughout the last season, changing drivers repeatedly in order to maximise sponsorship potential.  However, following a deal being cancelled with Toyota last week due to a lack of bill payment for technical information and assistance the future of the team looked bleak.

Owner Jose Ramon Carabante says that the team is safe and will continue with its partnership with Williams.  However, he said that as much as he wants Spaniard De la Rosa to drive with the team, he must bring appropriate funding.

“Pedro wants to drive for the team, but he has to bring the sponsorship” Carabante told radio station Cadena Ser

“Without the money, sadly, we can’t find a place for him in the team.  We cannot afford such a luxury.  He must contribute at least €10million

“Someone like Pedro would be great for the team, because he could really develop the car and give us direction into 2012” he added
