Wurz may get call by McLaren

Norbert Haug may be calling for Pedro de la Rosa to race at Imola if he’s needed, but the Spaniard says it would “fair enough" if Alex Wurz got the next drive. Despite Wurz having been at McLaren longer than de la Rosa, the latter was given the responsibility of replacing Juan Pablo Montoya at the Bahrain GP. And did so to good effect, finishing the race in fifth place and earning McLaren four World Championship points. However, Wurz also impressed on the Friday of the race weekend. Acting as the team’s Friday tester, the Austrian ended day one at the top of the timesheets, which means McLaren face the difficult decision of choosing either Wurz or de la Rosa as Montoya’s replacement at Imola – that’s of course if they need someone to fill in for the Colombian.
