The word on the street in F1 circles is that Pedro de la Rosa will test for McLaren this week at Jerez de la Frontera. The Spanish driver has been looking for work since being dumped by Jaguar at the end of last season although a recent visit to McLaren headquarters did create a few ripples of interest. More importantly however de la Rosa's manager Julian Jakobi is a well-known figure in F1 circles and is close to McLaren because of his relationships with Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost in the past.
