The Spanish press is reporting that Pedro de la Rosa will return to F1 racing next year with Spanish team Campos Meta 1.
His team mate, the report claims, will be GP2 driver Vitaly Petrov, who until this weekend was Romain Grosjean’s team mate at Barwa Addax. Petrov would be the first Russian to race in F1 if he got the drive.
