De la Rosa delighted with AMT debut performance
The 29-year-old was at the wheel of the A21 chassis for two-days of a three-day test at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia and he was happy with the debut performance of the AMT V10 power unit.
"It has been a very good test," De la Rosa said. "Any problems we had anticipated have not materialized. I am very surprised."
De la Rosa's team-mate Dutchman Jos Verstappen took over duties for the final day on Friday after the initial test had been switched from the Circuit de Catalunya to Valencia.
Meanwhile, a racing suit worn by De la Rosa raised £1,500 (pounds) for the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) at a fund-raising dinner held in London.
