Alguersuari 'optimistic' after Friday practice
26 August 2011 – Toro Rosso driver Jaime Alguersuari was left in a positive mood following Friday's pair of 90 minute practice sessions at Spa-Francorchamps, explaining that his STR6 is performing well in the changeable conditions. The Spaniard ended up ninth quickest in the morning, before concluding his programme in 14th place this afternoon.
"The car feels fast and I am sure there is more to come, as we did not run the softer, faster tyre in the dry today. I enjoy driving in the wet, even if it can make life complicated in the race. But, for ourselves, these types of unpredictable race can often be the ones where we get a good result.
"I am optimistic for the rest of the weekend and my aim will be to push hard and get in the points again on Sunday."
