McLaren to run de la Rosa on Fridays

McLaren looks almost certain to capitalize on its disappointing fifth-placed finish in this year's constructors' world championship by taking up the option it has to run a third car during the Friday of grand prix weekends during 2005. "At races where we consider it will be to the team's advantage to run a third car we will do so," said a McLaren spokeswoman. The identity of a third driver has not been confirmed but with test driver Alexander Wurz too tall to fit into the current version of the MP4-20, it is likely the team will pick Pedro de la Rosa.
