According to Red Bull’s Helmut Marko, Jaime Alguersuari is set to keep his seat at Toro Rosso for next season.
There have been many doubts about Alguersuari’s place, mainly because Sebastian Buemi had been confirmed months ago. Mirko Bortolotti and Bruno Senna have been rumoured to replace him, but Marko says:
“It will be Alguersuari. We must still resolve some contractual details, but our choice will be him.”
It would be pointless to see Jaime ousted after only 8 races in Formula 1, and I’m sure he needs another season to get up to speed. However, a similar situation occured last year with Sebastien Bourdais, and he was removed halfway through last season.
Hopefully Jaime can prove his ability in the car, as his previous racing history shows us. I’m hoping that he can match Sebastien Buemi next year.
