Even with Daniel Ricciardo parked at HRT for the time being, Toro Rosso’s current drivers cannot yet afford to relax.
Jaime Alguersuari, however, insists he is not worried he might lose his place to energy drink Red Bull’s latest protege.
“Not at all,” he said during an interview with Spain’s Diario Sport.
“Why? Because it’s a situation that does not depend on me. I don’t waste time thinking about things that I can do nothing about.
“I can put my helmet on and do my best. I am serious and I want to progress, but I do not think about whether I will have a Red Bull or a Ferrari or a Toro Rosso or a HRT, I worry about making the most of what I have now.”
As for 2011, Alguersuari was asked if he thinks the F1 world can already assume that Sebastian Vettel will be the champion.
“Si,” the Spaniard answered. “The (points) gap is enormous and even if his competitors win every other race he will always be there.”
