Jaime Alguersuari has said he expects a lot from the final four races of the season, starting with a top ten finish at this weekend's Korean Grand Prix.
Alguersuari, who lies 14th in the standings, hopes a string of good results will draw Toro Rosso closer to Sauber with a possibility of beating them in the constructor's championship.
The gap, as it stands is eleven points going into the final four races of the year.
"I expect a lot from this year and especially now we are not far away from Sauber," he said. "I think we can manage to score some points in the last four events and hopefully to finish the race in the top ten. That would be awesome."
The young Spaniard also looks to improve on the result he achieved at the Yeognam Circuit last year, after an opportunity to score points was unfortunately missed.
"I hope better," he said. "We had a problem in the pitstop last year and I think a top-seven position was possible here. It was a chaotic race with the rain, a very difficult one for all of us."
Alguersuari's weekend however could be hampered with Red Bull protege Jean- Eric Vergne being given the chance to drive the Toro Rosso during tomorrow's FP1 session. Alguersuari though remains less than concerned about missing FP1 with the weather forecast seeming to point in the Spaniards direction.
"Tomorrow it is raining at the moment," he said. "That's the prediction that we have. We know that on Sunday possibly the race will be in the dry conditions and also the Saturday, so at the moment it is not a bad job. Also the fact I know the track so it is also fine and it is not bothering me so much."
