At the young age of 19 years and four months, Jaime Alguersuari will compete in his first race with the Scuderia Toro Rosso at this weekends Hungarian Grand Prix. And coincidentally fellow Spaniard Fernando Alonso was also 19 years old when he debuted with the Minardi squad back in 2001.So it is relatively obvious that Alonso supports Alguersuari despite his lack of experience in a Formula One single seater.
Alonso shared his opionions with the 'EFE' news agency, "All the signs are that he is very good, if you are a Formula One driver it is because you are good, so no one should worry."
"I am in favour of beginning as young as possible. I congratulate him and wish him a splendid future."
