Jun.23 (GMM) Jaime Alguersuari is happy with the performance of his formula one employer.

Toro Rosso is just eighth in the 2010 world championship with 8 points, ahead only of Sauber and F1’s three new teams.

But rookie Alguersuari, who made his debut at short notice to replace the struggling Sebastien Bourdais mid last year, insists the Faenza based outfit is the “best team of people”.

After four years of using a customer car designed by Red Bull, Toro Rosso built the STR5 and Alguersuari calls it a “miracle”.

“Toro Rosso has a budget that is barely 80 million euros but they have built the car without relying on (owner) Red Bull and achieved a more than acceptable outcome,” he is quoted by the EFE news agency.

Alguersuari also thinks the 2010 season is the “best and most dramatic at least in the last ten years”.

“The FIA has a lot to do with it,” he states, “because the common electronics, the single tyre brand and the unfortunate lack of testing has led to no one having a dominant position.”
