Pedro de la Rosa has admitted he was asked to hold station behind his Sauber teammate at the end of the Turkish Grand Prix.

Kamui Kobayashi scored the Swiss team's first point of the 2010 season on Sunday, but his veteran teammate Pedro de la Rosa was mere tenths from his rear wing at the chequered flag.

"I am very happy to have been competitive, but I wanted something more," he is quoted by the Spanish sports newspaper Marca.

"I was close to the points but when you have to fight your teammate for it, it is difficult," added de la Rosa.

"I had to restrain myself. I wanted to attack him but on the radio they said other things," revealed the 39-year-old Spaniard.
