Pedro is competing in his first full season of Formula One, alongside team leader Johnny Herbert.

Throughout winter testing, he has gained experience of the 107C's semi-automatic gearbox and has acclimated himself well to the handling of a passive car in preparation for the sixteen round FIA Formula One World Championship.
