The veteran Spaniard, however, will still be at the Grands Prix in his new role as Ferrari's development test driver, and so according to El Mundo Deportivo newspaper he will likely remain president of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association (GPDA).

"I am ready to go on, if the other drivers want me to," he is quoted as saying.

It is reported de la Rosa's re-election will take place in Australia, ahead of the 2013 season opener next month.
