Alguersuari confirmed at Toro Rosso
Scuderia Toro Rosso has confirmed that Spanish driver Jaime Alguersuari will continue for 2010 with the Italian team.
The teenager replaced Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais at the team starting at the Hungarian GP in August.
Team Principal Franz Tost said, "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. 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."
