We learn, with a strong disapproval, the finalisation of a test driver's agreement between Pedro de La Rosa and Jaguar.

We regret this signature, made in spite of our formal warnings to the different parties involved.

We have an agreement giving us exclusive rights on test driver's services of Mr Pedro de La Rosa. This is public knowledge. Mr de La Rosa himself declared it on several occasions, and even began the execution of this agreement on the test track.

We intend to exercise our rights against him as well as against his representatives and agents and if necessary against our competitor. For us it is mainly a question of having the interests of our Team respected, both on principle and for professional ethics and because of the prejudice suffered by our company which wrongly preferred, some weeks ago, Mr De la Rosa to other candidates.
