Sebastien Buemi looks set to earn a reprieve from Red Bull, but former team-mate Jaime Alguersuari may not be so lucky...

Alguersuari had every right to keep on line because he was on a flying lap. Do you think if it had been Vettel holding Jaime up, Marko would have said anything?

If Buemi gets this role I for one would be quite happy as I was starting to become a fan of his.

EDIT by CRASH.NET! Insulting remark removed.

Dylan, If you were Alguwhatshisname and you were desparate to get a drive for RBR in 2012 would you consider it a good career move to hold up their number one driver and World Champion or would you decide that letting him past was the better option?

Taipan, If the incident was in qualifying Marko would have some excuse for tearing Jaime a new one, however it was Saturday practice. Also by this point Vettel was already champion and Webber was also confirmed at RBR for 2012. There was nothing for Jaime to gain.

The world doesn't revolve around Vettel and Markos huge ego

Its strange that there are people above the age of 3 years out there who really entertain the thought that Markos little chat with Alguarsari has anything to do with him being sacked by Torro Rosso. Isnt Alguarsari the guy who failed to make it into Q2 more often than any other driver apart from the usual suspects in the bottom 3 teams and who was beaten by Buemi in qualifying. Not that Buemi is superstar potential anyway.

Red Bull invested so much time and money into Alguarsai, they dont drop him because of one little incident. Also Marko wasnt furious at A., a furious Marko would rip him to pieces. That was standard talk in the high pressure world of F1, nothing that Vettel, Buemi, Webber, Ricciardo etc have not experienced before. There is also 2 to tango, maybe Alguarsari has other plans or options and doesnt want to be the reserve driver of Red Bull and Torro Rosso which is basically killing time and waiting for an accident to happen.

@ Taipan. Marko a successful F1 driver? Please list the GP's that he won.. Sorry but I can't recall a single one. So what if he has a law degree..has nothing to do with F1. Marko is temperamental, biased and an old school thinker. Plus he thinks the sun shines out of his behind. Time to go Marko baby!

Barracuda, Did I say F1 driver? You obviously don't think that winning Le Mans with one of the best times ever or doing the same at the Targa Florio constitutes being a successful racing driver. What's your view on Nuvolari? I'm guessing he wasn't a successful racing driver either, in your mind at least. If you look at Marko's performances in F1 races he was actually rather handy and if injury hadn't ended his career he may well have succeded in F1.

As for being a temperamental, biased, old school thinking fool, yeah his involvement really seems to be holding RBR back isn't it?

barracuda. very surprisingly, i agree with ty, even though he was not around in markos day, whereas i was!
question....where you following racing when marko was driving?
i agree that marko was a good driver and was destined for greater things until injured.
and you say he is tempermental? what have you to reference this to?
and he is biased? well, he is employed as an advisor to redbull, so hasn't he a right to look after their interest?
and he is "old school thinking"? what do you mean by that, and anyway, what is wrong with that?

other than that, i think that algy is a good but immature driver. he will pick up something else.
