Alguersuari happy at Toro Rosso despite rumours

By on Friday, May 6, 2011

May 6 (GMM) Jaime Alguersuari has once again swept away speculation he could either be retained by Toro Rosso, promoted to Red Bull or left out of formula one altogether.

Red Bull's latest protege Daniel Ricciardo will almost certainly have a Toro Rosso seat next year, leaving Alguersuari and Sebastien Buemi nervous about their futures but also eyeing the potentially-vacant seat for 2012 alongside Sebastian Vettel.

Asked in Turkey how he feels about the rumours, Alguersuari is quoted by AS newspaper: "I feel as I did yesterday or a month ago.

"I can't do anything about the rumours. I think if I do a good job I will deserve to be where I am. Personally, I'm proud of what I'm doing and if there is still a lot to do I think there is a great future ahead," said the Spaniard.

Having only just turned 21, he said he is happy at Toro Rosso.

"Obviously, I'd like to always be in the points or always fighting for podiums and wins but that's not possible now.

"I'm with a team that is like a family, I am happy to see a future beyond this and see where we are in a couple of years.

"My teammate Buemi is the best I've ever had, very good over one lap and hard to beat, but I'll try," he insisted.
