|The Flying Lap, Episode 44: Abu Dhabi GP Preview; Jaimie Alguersuari|
November 11, 2011
2011 was always going to be a big year in the life of Jaime Alguersuari - and he has stepped up to the plate with some superb drives into the points. The youngest driver ever to start a World Championship Grand Prix (Jaime was 19yrs, 125 days when he made his debut for Scuderia Toro Rosso in Hungary, 2009), Jaime has evolved into a consistent and fast racer. He qualified a brilliant seventh in China this year and then backed that up with a P6 in the changing conditions at Spa and then P10 in India. Jaime has also scored points in seven races so far this year, most recently in India, where he finished an excellent eighth. We spoke to Jaime at his home in Barcelona just prior to his departure for Abu Dhabi. He talks about his early days, the pressures that came with his F1 debut, his performances this year - and his love of music (specifically the music he mixes as one of Europe's most acclaimed house DJs). We are also joined live by the very experienced F1 composites engineer, Ian Thomson. With successful spells at Williams, Ferrari, Sauber and Super Aguri behind him, Ian is playing a major role in the new Moldex composites facility in India. Ian will be talking about the engineering styles and approaches of the various F1 teams and about India as a major new racing manufacturing base.
