He may not have a race or even a reserve seat, but Jaime Alguersuari will at least be a regular face in the Formula 1 paddock in 2012.

The axed Toro Rosso driver will be experienced broadcaster James Allen's co-commentator for British radio BBC 5 Live in 2012, the Telegraph newspaper reports.

Journalist Tom Cary said the news will be confirmed officially on Tuesday.

Still just 21, Spaniard Alguersuari revealed last month that he will remain fully focused on Formula 1 this year.

"I am thinking only of F1," he said. "What I can say is that I will devote myself body and soul to F1 in 2012.

"I will prepare myself, with no contractual relationships with anyone, to be ready and available for any opportunity that arises."
