Short Straights Pedro set for Camp P EDRO de la Rosa has signed a two- year deal to race for new-for-2010 n Bernie Ecclestone has hinted that he is considering rotating the British Grand Prix between Silverstone and Donington Park, as fears still exist that Donington will not be ready in time to host the race in 2010. BRDC President Damon Hill has said the idea is “absurd.” n McLaren has announced that it will run KERS until the end of the 2009 season, stating that to drop it now would require an almost total redesign of their car. Team Principal Martin Whitmarsh has confirmed that the team will drop the technology in 2010, as agreed by FOTA teams. n Red Bull Racing will not stop its drivers from racing one another in 2009. Despite the team needing to maximise every opportunity to cut back the gap in the drivers’championship to current leader Jenson Button, Red Bull has refused to solely back either Sebastian Vettel or Mark Webber at this mid-point of the season. n The second round of the 2009 Superleague series has seen Craig Dolby (Tottenham Hotspur) and Esteban Guerrieri (Al-Ain) take race victories, and Adrian Valles (Liverpool) again take top honours in the $100,000 shootout.

In other driver news, Jarno Trulli is set to open negotiations with the Toyota team, and is expected to renew his contracts for 2010. Meanwhile Nico Rosberg has been linked with a move to both McLaren and BrawnGP next season, as both Heikki Kovalainen and Rubens Barrichello are also rumoured to have been in talks with Williams. Meanwhile, Danica Patrick has moved to distance herself from rumours linking her with the USF1 team. Stating in interviews over the weekend that she remained undecided over her plans for 2010, she nevertheless hinted that she would prefer to remain in America rather than go back to a European-based lifestyle. De La Rosa leads driver movements, while Danica sa to re-sign, and Rosberg looking good for Macca-Me
