30 Days of BTG - Day 26: Pedro de la Rosa’s ‘massive problem’

Feb 24, 12:01 AM

F1 test sessions can reveal technical problems with cars, or unlock extra performance. They can also reveal stars of the future. Pedro de la Rosa, one of F1’s most experienced test drivers, was there to witness Lewis Hamilton’s first drive in an F1 car in September 2006. The Spaniard was stunned by Hamilton’s speed and what a ‘massive problem’ he’d cause anyone trying to beat him. On Beyond The Grid, Pedro told Tom Clarkson his memories of the test and his own magical F1 debut.

Pedro’s full interview from 2020 is right here.

F1 Beyond The Grid’s new season begins on Wednesday March 1st.
