Alguersuari very happy about debut race

By on

After finishing the Hungarian race in 15th place, Spanish upstart Jaime Alguersuari silenced the doubters and gave his team hope in that he could solidly drive a Formula One car. What also needs mentioning is that he finished one place infront of his teammate Sebastien Buemi in the sister Toro Rosso chassis.

"I just tried to find my pace on the track, regularly and constantly, and to make no mistakes. That was the target for the weekend and everyone wanted to have that, especially Toro Rosso and Red Bull; everyone asked me for that and we managed to complete the goal, which was to finish the race and not to make mistakes," Alguersuari explained to reporters.

"I think everyone is happy," he exclaimed. "Christian (Horner, Red Bull Racing team principal) congratulated me yesterday. Dr (Helmut) Marko, Franz (Tost, Scuderia Toro Rosso team principal) and everyone in the team is so happy - I'm also happy!"

As to what he thinks about the statements that he was too young, he said, "I don't give a s*** what the other people say. Before coming here and doing practice on Friday, everyone was talking really badly about me but, really, I don't care - I just do what I can do, see what my expectations are and what my future is going to be."
