    Alguersuari has already hinted several times that he has a drive for next year so Sauber could be a possibility now.

    Yeah I can def see it happening I just wondered if it had been announced as wouldn't be surprised to see Sauber announce Perez replacement today.

    I can see it happening but I can't say I'd be massively chuffed about it.

    All quiet on the Alguersauri front. There is still the Force India drive but back when he made the announcement that he'd got a deal in place the whole Hulk/Sauber deal wasn't on the table so couldn't be them.

    I wonder who he thought he had a deal with.

    He has the Pirelli testing knowledge so he is in the mix, surely. I wouldn't discount force India. Maybe its the other Sauber? We will find out soon enough...

    If you read the recent Perez interview we're pretty sure we know who Sauber are gonna announce and it ain't Jamie.

    I do think he is in the mix for Force India but I reckon it'll go to Bianch in the end.

    Caterham maybe?

    Mr Alguersauri seems very upset at the moment having be assured he had a race seat in a 'team that usual scores' and now being told its gone. Has to be Force India doesn't it? The plot thickens.

    A plot that not many give too much of a shit about.

    He is just another driver who has fallen by the wayside his F1 career is over. it was never a very outstanding one anyway...

    I always found it weird how he would always make noise and say "I've got good news", "a race seat is definite" something along those lines constantly, yet never seemed to have came across as a serious candidate for any of the seats.

    Don't see why he can't just name the team. A lot of hot air I think.

    When he replaced Bourdais at STR, he always ran his mouth off about how Bourdais had had his chance and showed he wasn't any kind of potential WDC. The same can be said of Algersauri in spades, as his record wasn't even the equal of Bourdais, IMO.

    So the man who claimed driving and F1 car made him feel like a god has hung up his helemt at 25

    Alguersuari retires from racing aged 25

    Its not mentioned much in the article by Alguersuari blacked out at the end of a Formula E race and the FIA said he had to do a medical before he was allowed back into the car. He never did the medical and therefore his team replaced him. All he talks about here is a lack of motivation.

    For a man who was once touted as an amazing talent of the future giving it all up at 25 was not what was expected.

    I hope it really has to do with lack of motivation and not something more sinister... it' s always worrying when a driver blacks out with no details being released. :unsure:

    I think this is just the downside of the brutal red bull young driver programme. Because they did get too much too young & to have your career over after 2 yrs at age 21 before many greats had even begun senna 24 lauda 22 Prost 25 Schumacher 22 Hamilton 22 Mansell 27

    So mustve been hard to taje

    Yeah, and Mansell didn't even approach his peak years till he was about 32 anyway... What chance would there be for late developers these days? Well none whatsoever actually but they don't even get into motor racing at all anymore. About 26 used to be an average age to get into F1. Today it's way too late already. Shame. A potentially large pool of talent has been lost.

    Verstappen can still run for 7 more years and retire younger than Alguersari

    Yet Alguersari was F1's youngest ever driver when he made his debut.

    A prophcy?

    So maybe the question should be, what is the point of teams getting them as young as possible (and by-passing the junior formulaes) and does it not cause them to burn themselves out younger too?

    Back in the eighties there were still plenty of competitive drivers in their late thirties, despite the fact (and this is something drivers of all eras agree on) that cars back then were physically more exhausting to drive.
