Alguersuari confirmed at Toro Rosso

Jaime Alguersuari has finally been confirmed at Toro Rosso after weeks of speculation as to the identity of the team’s second driver.

The Barcelona-born driver claimed in November that he would be racing for the former Minardi team, although the team has, until now, neither confirmed nor denied that this was the case.

Similar to the team’s late appointment of both Vitantonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed in the lead-up to the 2007 season, one must speculate that the team cast its eyes at all available options and will be expecting (perhaps unreasonably, given his relative inexperience) Alguersuari to continually improve his performance in the early rounds of the season if he is to retain his drive throughout 2010.

Let’s wait and see!
