Alguersuari: A chance to prepare

Jaime Alguersuari broke into Formula 1 at Hungary last year aged just 18, with no testing experience. With a new season comes a full testing programme, and he says he's now much better prepared to show what he can do

It would probably be wrong to draw too many conclusions from the fact that Jaime Alguersuari set the quickest lap during a brief dry window at Jerez on Friday, especially as only Lewis Hamilton went faster when conditions were good on Saturday.

As we have to keep reminding ourselves, the huge fuel loads required this year mean that testing times are harder than ever to judge. Nevertheless, the performance was a timely boost for Alguersuari, who arguably has more to prove than most in 2010.
