We all thought we’d be seeing no more of former Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari, after he failed to get a 2012 drive. Fear not though Alguersuari fans, you have not heard the last of him.
It was revealed today that Jaime Alguersuari would be joining BBC Radio 5 Live’s commentary team, to provide expert analysis.
Well, Sky have Damon Hill to do the same, so the Beeb had to do something to compete with their coverage, which sounds like it may be pretty unbeatable. Even by the BBC’s standards/
For those of you who will not be able to view Sky coverage, BBC Radio 5 Live will be covering all 20 races, so while you won’t be able to see the action, you’ll certainly be able to hear it.
Speaking about his new role Jaime said;
“It’s great to be part of the BBC’s F1 commentary team on Radio 5 live. It will be interesting to look at the action from a different angle and bring that excitement and insight to listeners” – Jaime Alguersuari
Jaime still has high hopes for returning to the sport and says that due to his age (he’s only 21, would you believe it?) he has plenty of time to return to the sport.
I’m so glad that Jaime won’t disappear from the face of Formula 1 altogether this year, the guy really should be driving though. I mean Maldonado gets a drive and this guy doesn’t? Come on.
What do you think?
