Lewis Hamilton could make his formula one debut for McLaren at the upcoming Chinese grand prix, according to the current occupant of the seat.
Spaniard Pedro de la Rosa told commercial television channel ‘Tele 5’ that he still has not been told whether he is going to be needed beyond this week’s test at Silverstone.
In sunny Northamptonshire, de la Rosa was on Thursday narrowly outpaced for the first time by 21-year-old Hamilton as the Briton’s maiden formula one test concluded.
”The team will soon decide who they want for China,” de la Rosa said.
A decision is expected early next week.
