Alguersuari talking to McLaren about test driver role 8 March, 2012 Jaime Alguersuari Mar.8 (GMM) Jaime Alguersuari is reportedly in talks with McLaren about becoming a test driver for the team. The former Toro Rosso racer was speaking with Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, after being revealed as a radio co-commentator for the 2012 season with Britain’s BBC. “I am talking to a top team and there have been several meetings,” he said. “Everybody was caught out with not enough time to think of everything, so I was left without a seat.” It is believed that Alguersuari, 21, received a call from McLaren in January, enquiring about his services as a potential test driver. The driver was asked about the rumour and he replied: “The person who has said [that the team in question] is McLaren is you. “There are several possibilities that are being talked about. For now I’m with the BBC as a commentator and I don’t know how it’s going to go watching the races, because I want to get back to racing.” Subbed by AJN.
