Alguersuari interested to see progress

Jaime Alguersuari gets set to return to the scene of his debut in F1 at the Hungaroring
Jaime Alguersuari says he is interested to see the progress he has made during his F1 career to date when he returns to the scene of his debut in the sport this weekend.

The Spaniard joined Toro Rosso for the Hungarian Grand Prix last year after the departure of Sebastien Bourdais and impressed onlookers with the way in which he performed through the remainder of the 2009 season having been unable to complete any testing prior to his debut.

The Spaniard has gone on to score on two occasions this season, although his German Grand Prix was ruined by an accident on the opening lap when he ran into the rear of team-mate Sebastien Buemi.

Despite that, Alguersuari remains one of the more promising youngsters on the grid and he said he was keen to see how he performs in Hungary this time around now he has a year of racing behind him.

“Last year's Hungarian GP was my debut in Formula 1 and what I remember best is actually finishing the race, because it was the toughest thing I had done,” he said. “It was good fun in a way, because I did not care about the lap times or my position, I was just driving the car.

“It was a great weekend and I had not expected to finish the race, as physically the Hungaroring is a very demanding track with no straights and lots of corners so there is no time to catch your breath and a year ago I was not at the right level of fitness required to be a Grand Prix driver.

“I am looking forward to going back there this time as, I was so inexperienced last year that it will be really interesting to see the track again with one year of racing in F1 under my belt.”

Agree Taz, I also think Petrov is the real deal as well, and with some experience and support, and learning to cut back a bit from the absolute limit, an area where Koba has come on in leaps and bounds this year. I still think though that these younger drivers should be encouraged, but for straight up raw pace Koba and Petrov for sure.
