Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari will be ringing in the New Year behind the controls of a DJ workstation, according to reports in the Spanish press.

The 20-year-old operates under the alias of ‘DJ Squire’ and is set to perform at a Barcelona event at midnight which will be broadcast on local television.

Alguersuari is not the only F1 driver to dabble in a bit of DJing on the side, with fellow 2010 grid driver Sakon Yamamoto also quite talented behind the mixing desks. Former F1 driver Raul Boesel has also embarked on a career as a DJ in his native Brazil.

“I am crazy for music,” Alguersuari said when asked about his other job.

“I couldn’t live without it,” he added. “I love sounds and I love electronic music, that’s one of my biggest passions in life.”
