Former Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari does not expect the recent Red Bull floor clarification to affect the squad, explaining that he doubts it was of 'crucial' performance benefit. The Spaniard, who is determined to return to Formula 1 in 2013, has tipped Mercedes and Lotus to set the pace in Canada this weekend.
"I don't think the Red Bull cars will lose too much from the FIA ruling about the hole in the floors," Alguersuari said in his column for BBC Sport. "We don't have the information about what the floor was doing to the performance. It seems like not such a crucial thing - as much as the DRS of the Mercedes, especially in a straight line.
"I'm sure it will be a very exciting weekend (in Montreal). I think there will be between two and three stops - not just one stop, but let's see how the temperatures do over the weekend. I will believe Mercedes will be fast, and the Lotuses are looking great with their fantastic mechanical grip that they seen to have."
Alguersuari has contested two Canadian Grands Prix to date, most notably finishing eighth in last year's event, taking the first of seven points finishes in 2011.
