The lineup for the 2010 Formula 1 season took another step toward completion on Tuesday with the news that Pedro de la Rosa will drive for the BMW Sauber team, the Spaniard securing one of the most coveted seats left.
With the Sauber lineup complete, all eyes will be now on Renault, which has yet to announce who will partner Robert Kubica at the team this year. There will be no shortage of candidates for the vacant seat, with drivers like Nick Heidfeld or Romain Grosjean yet to find out if they will be on the grid again this season.
Another team yet to finalize its lineup is Campos Meta, which has only signed Brazilian Bruno Senna so far and has one of the four empty slots ahead of the start of the season in March.
US F1 remains the only team yet to confirm any drivers, with Argentinean Jose Maria Lopez linked with one of the seats for several months.
