Pedro de la Rosa could be set to return to formula one with Mercedes.

In recent years, the Spanish veteran worked closely with his countryman Fernando Alonso at Ferrari as official reserve driver.

But, like Alonso, the almost 44-year-old has now departed Maranello, triggering speculation he might be set to return to his former long-time employer, McLaren.

According to the Spanish sports daily Marca, however, de la Rosa is actually more likely to switch to Mercedes, following “contact” with the reigning champions over the last “several weeks”.

The report said a reserve or simulator role is being touted.

Marca added that de la Rosa’s latest meetings with Mercedes chiefs took place at the Barcelona test. (GMM)
