Alguersuari offers 'notebook of secrets' to 2013 team

Jaime Alguersuari hopes his "little notebook" can help him mount a return to the formula one grid for 2013. Spain's El Confidencial publication said the former Toro Rosso driver is eyeing the vacancy that has just opened up at Force India.

There are plenty of other suitors for the job, but Alguersuari thinks his role as F1 tyre supplier Pirelli's main test driver gives him an edge. Indeed, with his thousands of kilometres of running in Pirelli's Renault test car this year now over, Alguersuari is reportedly still clocking up miles on the 2013 tyres in the Dallara simulator. "It's very important," the 22-year-old said, "because if you change the structure and the compound and the profile of the tyres, the more practice you have the better."

The very first chance Alguersuari's rivals will get to sample the 2013 Pirellis will not be until first practice in Brazil late next month. "I've done the equivalent distance of eleven grands prix this year," he explained, "testing hundreds of sets of tyres, which gives you extra confidence to understand their behaviour in the temperature ranges, balance and durability. At home I have my little notebook with all the secrets for next year," added Alguersuari. (GMM)
