The Formula 1 It is full of records and records that the best pilots have improved over the years. Lewis hamilton equaled Michael Schumacher or to Ayrton Senna. However, this weekend a brand that has been in existence since 2005, and that belongs to Spanish, was confirmed again Pedro Martinez de la Rosa, when it was competing with McLaren.
The Spaniard was a reserve driver for the British team, and when Juan Pablo Montoya (who had several problems with the team leader) did not run any test, he was in charge of getting into the car. There, de la Rosa completed several decent careers, and in the Hungarian Grand Prix In 2006 he reached the podium after beating Michael Schumacher in an intense fight.
However, this weekend Spanish Formula 1 fans remembered the figure of Pedro de la Rosa. The Barcelona native continues to hold the record for the Bahrain track. 2005 marked a time of 1m31s447, and it remained in the history of the route. This Sunday, the lap record of Valtteri Bottas it was of 1m32s090, more than half a second apart.
After this weekend’s race, de la Rosa was relieved by the record they couldn’t get from him. Spanish automatically became a meme for Formula 1 fans, and even became a trend in Spain and some parts of the world. After 16 years, the track record of the Bahrain circuit still belongs to the Spaniard and it seems that it will be difficult for them to break it.
Pedro de la Rosa debuted in the top flight in 1999 with the team Arrows. Throughout his career he started 104 Grands Prix and obtained only one podium, in the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix. He was also in the teams Jaguar, McLaren and HRT (Hispania Racing Team). In addition, he was a test driver for the Escudería Ferrari.
