Toro Rosso confirm Alguersuari

1 Mins read

Toro Rosso have revealed today that they will be sticking with the driver line-up they finished the 2009 season with, after confirming the second seat will be taken by Jaime Alguersuari.

The team took their time to evaluate their options before securing the services of the 19-year-old for 2010.

“Considering that he made his debut only halfway through 2009, at the Hungarian Grand Prix, with no prior testing, he did a good job, making steady progress throughout the second half of the year, with a mature approach considering he is still only nineteen years old,” commented Team Principal, Franz Tost.

“This season, he will again face a steep learning curve, as all the circuits in the first part of the season will be new to him. Jaime's appointment also confirms our team's commitment to bringing on graduates of the Red Bull Young Driver Programme.”

Alguersuari will be partnered with Sebastien Buemi for 2010.
