"Still not 22, Jaime Alguersuari has had some impressive races for Toro Rosso in his best season yet.

"He has outscored his team-mate Sebastien Buemi and also won points on seven occasions.

"He still looks a little wild from time to time and may also be under pressure from the Red Bull trainees.

"He may just have done enough to be secure for 2012, but it's nervous times."
