he make a very good point - Was it Mako that made the off hand remark.

They had a point about TR being a breeding ground for the Red Bull senior team but saying that are just not good enough (and no slot there any way so bget new faces in - same one not good for PR), was a bit much, as the car was no where near the RB or top ten like he says.

I'm a Ricciardo fan, so I am glad he is in.

But Alguersuari is young, and probably deserves another chance. He should feel hard done by, and I am glad he is pointing out the comments, which were unfair.

Marko is a rude twit!

Helmet Marko has shown himself to be very arrogant and outlandish in his comments. Given the reasons they offered for removing the two Torro Rosso drivers , they should not have led them on about them having the drive for 2012. They should have been told much earlier , allowing them a better chance of getting another seat.

what happens if Ricciardo and Vergne are both evenly matched? I still can't understand why they didn't partner Alguersuari with Ricciardo with Vernge as a test driver? If Ricciardo blew him away then fine replace him but now they have two drivers and no yard stick to judge them by. unless the car is very good or one driver is a lot better than the other then I think we could see history repeat itself in a few years

This is a case of... "See it can happen to you" When Alguersauri
was signed by TR it was at the expense of another driver,
we friendly called "SeaBass". Actually the car was a Turtle
it wouldn't fly. Forget about winning any points..
The Fish was punted out the back door.
Willing to bet this season nothing will change.
Methinks that the top Dogs at Toro Rosso are nothing to
sing about.

Badman, Jose

I hope in the near future this gentleman have a chance to prove again.

Remarkable his politeness and control over Marko and Tost harsh and very biased words.

This is a true gentleman and a strong driver who deserves a good drive... but F1 is now a pay driver's world so he will look elsewhere (DTM or WEC)

Torro Rosso lost their way after Adrian Newey moved over to Red Bull, Aluersuari didn't have a prayer in winning with that car and neither will anyone who replaces him, Although i do expect Vergne to blow his team mate away at TR.

maroc. newey didnt move from str to rbr. he was with rbr after mclaren dumped him. but str did use a copy of the rb, until fia decided they had to be constructors in their own right. unfortunately adrian did not have a twin brother.

i understand why algy is mad at rbull, but his dropping could not have been unexpected. str is used as a proving ground for a move to rb, and if you havent shown a capability of promotion, there is little point in keeping someone in str, hoping they will improve. others have a right to be considered.
red bull is a BUSINESS, and need to WIN. if ricciardo and vergne dont show a magic quality, they will also be dropped.
