Pirelli names F1 test driver

ANOTHER SHOT: Jaime Alguersuari will return to a Formula 1 car (albeit a 2010 version) as he joins Pirelli's test squad.

LONDON - Spaniard Jaime Alguersuari, who raced for Toro Rosso in 2011, was named as an official Formula 1 test driver for tyre supplier Pirelli on March 30.

The 22-year-old will share duties with Brazilian Lucas Di Grassi, last year's sole tester for the Italian company. Each will drive a 2010 Renault in four development tests at Jerez, Spa, Monza and Barcelona.


Pirelli said in a statement: "The tests will be aimed at defining the 2013 range of Pirelli tyres, which will have new compounds and structures, as well as trying out compound developments that could be seen later on this season."

The pair will also be used for GP2 testing and simulator development.

"I have a huge desire to get behind the wheel of an F1 car again and return to competition, so this is a brilliant chance for me," said Alguersuari, who has been filling in time as a radio pundit and DJ.
