Rodriguez – I deserve 2008 Spyker seat

Wed, 10 October 2007, 01:50

Spanish GP2 driver Roldan Rodriguez still counts himself in the running for a race drive with the Spyker team in 2008.

The 22-year-old, reportedly with $15 million in sponsor cash in tow, was late last month confirmed as a tester for the Silverstone based team for the upcoming “2007/08 winter period”.

Rodriguez will travel with the newly Indian-Dutch owned team to Brazil next weekend, and he declared in the Spanish sports newspaper Marca that “I deserve to be one of the 24 drivers” next year.

“I am going to see how the team works (at a race weekend),” he added.

Rodriguez, who drove for the Minardi-Piquet team this year, finished the GP2 championship in seventeenth place.

“Because of circumstances, lack of experience, failures of the team and bad luck, I did not obtain the result I would have wanted,” he declared.
