Red Bull’s motorsport consultant, Helmut Marko, has confirmed that Toro Rosso will retain Jaime Alguersuari for 2010, once the finer contractual issues have been sorted out – the Spanish teenager and F1’s youngest-ever driver will continue his partnership with Sebastien Buemi at the team.
Speaking the Italian website 422race.com, Marko confirmed that Alguersuari is Red Bull’s preferred choice for the second Toro Rosso race seat, which will be formally announced once the contract has been ironed out.
“It will be Alguersuari. It’s just some contractual details that have to be solved, but our choice is Alguersuari,” he said. “I don’t know when the official announcement will be, Franz Tost [Toro Rosso team principal] knows exactly when.”
Marko also denied recent speculation linking Bruno Senna to the team if his first team, Campos, failed to make it to the grid in Bahrain. “It’s not true. I’ve never heard about it,” said Marko.
