Alguersuari targeting Indycar move for 2014
23 August, 2013
Pirelli tester and former Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari could finally leave Formula 1 at the end of the season.
Since losing his race seat at Toro Rosso at the end of 2011, the Spaniard stayed in the paddock as a co-commentator for British radio, and he still remains tyre supplier Pirelli’s main tester.
But the Spanish sports newspaper Marca reports that Alguersuari, still just 23, is now eyeing a switch to America’s premier open-wheel scene.
The report said that chassis supplier Dallara is keen to see Alguersuari in Indycar, and is involved in talks to arrange a test in a DW12 car “in a few months”.
Marca linked Alguersuari with a move to the Panther team for 2013, who have recently fielded fellow Spaniard Oriol Servia. (GMM)
