Veteran driver Pedro de la Rosa is seeking to step down as president of the Formula 1 drivers’ association, the GPDA.
Speed Week said that the Ferrari Reserve Driver’s decision became clear last weekend in Australia, with a vote on his successor likely to take place next week ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix.
“Wanted: a driver with experience,” said correspondent Mathias Brunner.
Alongside 43-year-old Spaniard de la Rosa, the other GPDA directors at present are Jenson Button and reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel. (GMM)
