Pedro de la Rosa is to replace Sergio Perez in the Sauber in Montreal after the Mexican didn’t feel 100% after practice this morning.
McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh met Sauber management during the lunchbreak today and the Spaniard hurried down to the Swiss team’s garage with his luggage in tow.
Clearly there are massive contractual headaches to be overcome in such a short time but it seems that the two teams have dealt with it.
It remains to be seen whether he actually gets out in this session although his name is already on the timing screens.
De La Rosa drove for Sauber last season until being dropped in favour of Nick Heidfeld.
