The Spanish veteran is already under contract for 2013, but the team's technical director Toni Cuquerella said HRT also values his contribution off the track.

"It would be a great help if Pedro could stay connected to the team in a different role," he is quoted as saying by Germany's Sport1.

"His experience and skills extend far beyond the driving," added Cuquerella.

De la Rosa, 41, has contested almost 100 Grands Prix since 1999 for teams including Sauber, Jaguar and Arrows, and he also spent years as McLaren's main test and reserve driver.
