Toro Rosso sticks with Alguersuari for 2010

FAENZA, Italy -- Toro Rosso will stick with the same lineup for the 2010 Formula One season after confirming that Spanish driver Jaime Alguersuari will partner Sebastian Buemi.

The 19-year-old Alguersuari became the youngest driver to take part in an F1 race when he replaced the fired Sebastien Bourdais at the Hungarian Grand Prix midway through last season.

He finished just three of his eight races but team principal Franz Tost says that "with no prior testing, he did a good job, making steady progress throughout the second half of the year."

The Barcelona native came up through Red Bull's young driver program and will race alongside the 21-year-old Buemi.
