Alguersuari says Toro Rosso duo deserve 2012 stay

Toro Rosso’s technical director has said that he doesn't think there is any margin for improvement in his current drivers

Jaime Alguersuari has admitted he is betting all his chips on keeping his seat at Toro Rosso next year.

EFE news agency quotes the Spaniard as saying he will either stay at the second Red Bull team next year or leave formula one altogether.

"I would go," he confirmed. "If Red Bull does not want to continue with me, I will go and look for other things.

"I like it here and I am happy, but if I am not (kept) then I don't think I will continue in formula one," Alguersuari insisted.

Officially, Red Bull's Dr Helmut Marko is considering whether to replace either Alguersuari or Sebastien Buemi - or both - with Toro Rosso hopefuls Daniel Ricciardo or Jean-Eric Vergne.

Alguersuari insists: "We (Alguersuari and Buemi) both deserve to continue with our team and it would be a shame if we did not. With us two, the team will continue to grow."

He said Toro Rosso has made a "big leap" in recent times, leaving him personally "happy".

"I've done as much as I could and I'm very calm about my future. Happy and proud," said the 21-year-old.
