Jaime Alguersuari has refused to confirm or deny speculation he might be first in line should Force India have a driver vacancy for 2013.
El Mundo Deportivo, a Spanish newspaper the former Toro Rosso driver now writes a column for, mentioned that the Force India rumour had circulated in the Monte Carlo paddock at the weekend. When posed to Alguersuari, the 22-year-old answered: “I have said that I will be in the world championship in 2013, but I did not say where and I will not tell you now.”
Force India 2012 driver’s Paul di Resta has been linked with moves to top teams Mercedes or Ferrari.
Alguersuari continued: “As of June, all sorts of rumours start going around in formula one, but they are just that — rumours.”
