Campos denies de la Rosa deal done

UPDATE (GMM) Adrian Campos has denied reports that a two-year contract to bring Pedro de la Rosa back to the formula one grid in 2010 has been penned.

Spanish reports last weekend said the 38-year-old McLaren test driver is now assured a seat at the new-for-2010 Campos team, to be announced by the Spanish outfit at Valencia next month.

But the Spanish news agency EFE said Campos on Tuesday denied the existence of any finalized driver deals, even though he admitted that at least one of the team's drivers for next season could be unveiled at the European grand prix in late August.

07/18/09 (GMM) As has been speculated in recent weeks, Pedro de la Rosa has now penned a two-year contract to race with the new Campos team beginning next season, the Spanish newspaper Diario AS reports.

The 38-year-old McLaren test driver's deal will reportedly be unveiled by the Spanish outfit at the European grand prix at Valencia next month.

Barcelona local de la Rosa, who has 72 grands prix under his belt but not a single F1 race since 2006, is to be perhaps joined at the Spanish team by Bruno Senna or the Mexican Sergio Perez, who drove for Campos in the recent GP2 Asia series.

Perez, 19, is also backed by Telmex, the telecommunications giant.
