"Jaime Alguersuari made his F1 debut by driving in the final eight races of 2009 for Toro Rosso as a hasty replacement for Sebastien Bourdais.

"In at the deep end - but the 19-year-old still kept his head above water. Just.

"He has delivered a few very solid drives in 2010 but always seems to miss out near the end of the race. He needs to show greater progress in 2011.

"The team are going backwards with this driver pairing."
