McLaren have confirmed that Pedro de la Rosa is to return to the team as a test driver for the 2011 season.
Pedro last tested for the team in 2009, before switching to a Sauber race seat for the first half of 2010. He lost his Sauber drive before the completion of the season, but signed for Pirelli as test driver.
The Spaniard said of the move "Of all the teams I've driven for in Formula 1, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes is the one that really feels like home. So I'm very excited about returning to the team to help push the development of the MP4-26."
McLaren will also maintain existing test driver Gary Paffett, but he will be splitting his duties between Formula One testing, and competing in the DTM Championship for Mercedes-Benz.
